X-ray reservations

 

The Rigaku powder x-ray diffractometer is used by students.  The instrument is primarily "walk-on" but on-line scheduling using "Booked" is also availalble.  The real-time instrument availability status is monitored on our front page. The two single-crystal diffractometers are used primarily by staff.  The internet camera in the lab can also be used to determine whether instruments are in use.  You must have current X-ray safety training in order to be in the lab.
