  • The department maintains an x-ray diffraction facility equipped with a Bruker X8 APEX II diffractometer, which is designed for a so called “small molecule” crystallography. The facility provides all software necessary for a crystal structure solution and refinement and publication, including annually updated Cambridge Structural Database. Facility provides services not only to Cornell community, but also to many users outside Cornell. 

    Of the two diffractometers one has a 2K detector and a 6 KW rotating anode generator is primarily used for protein data collections, and the other one is a 1K instrument with a 2KW sealed tube generator which serves for all small molecule data collection.
