The CCS has one APEX II CCD Running with molybdenum Radiation as pictured using a 3-axis goinometer and has an Oxford 600 low temperature device and a camera for viewing of the crystals. This was upgraded from a Smart 1000 in January 2009.
The Center replaced the 1K CCD diffractometer in July 2007 with a brand new 3-axis goinometer APEX II diffraction system
which was moved to copper radiation in October 2008. This
Oxford Cyrosystream 700 series low temperature device.
Each diffractometer is equiped with a Pentium PC to control the diffractometer.
The lab has two microscopes for routine mounting of samples. One microscope is equipped with a high resolution color camera to allow viewing of the crystals for teaching purposes.
The Center has changed to using XP on the computers for all the major computational aspects of the Center. The center purchased a 2.4 GHz Duo Processor computer for data anaylsis.
The Center also has a model drill and accessories to build scale models of the crystal structures.
