The American Crystallographic Association Summer Course in Chemical Crystallography

Project: Research project

Project Details


The course outline is such that students would require no prior knowledge of X-ray diffraction theory or techniques. It would be desirable for students who apply for the course to have a background in Biochemistry, Chemistry or Physics. The course will revolve around X-ray diffraction theory being taught in the morning session while the afternoon and early evening sessions will be given over to practical experience. Students will be encouraged to bring their own samples for analysis. Students will be expected to collect data, solve and refine and present their findings to their classmates on a crystal of their own. Depending on the class size and number of available samples this may be arranged such that small groups of students work together to generate the data.
