Lattice structure

Collectively we have interests and expertise in many areas of X-ray science including:

  • diffraction;
  • trace element analysis;
  • reflectometry;
  • tomography;
  • photoemission;
  • small-angle scattering; and
  • EXAFS.

Our local laboratory based work is supplemented with larger scale experiments at national and international facilities.

These techniques are applied to research areas ranging from protein crystallography to condensed matter physics.
