BRING US YOUR PROBLEM CRYSTALS!
This workshop will introduce experienced crystallographers (graduate students, postdocs, and staff) to the newly upgraded ChemMatCARS Advanced Crystallography Station at beamline 15-ID of the Advanced Photon Source (APS)—a fast and powerful tool for structure determination and high-resolution charge density studies of small, difficult samples.
This instrument achieves spatial resolution to 2.1 Å-1. In addition, ChemMatCARS offers rapid setup, high-speed data collection, and service crystallography programs to optimize user access to available beamtime.
Participants are invited to propose up to 3 challenging samples for hands-on data collection and analysis during the workshop. Software experts will be on hand to help with difficult structures. Both new and experienced users of the APS are invited to attend.
- Beamtime begins the evening of December 3 (by assignment).
- Formal program held December 4-5, 2008.
- Class size limited to 18.
- Meals, onsite lodging, and partial travel support provided.
- Registration fee $50, due upon acceptance to the workshop.
- Application due October 1.
