Chemistry

Crystals are in the center of research, a) for deriving molecular structures via single crystal X-ray diffraction, as part of service to the Chemistry Department, or for the purpose of calculations of optical properties, b) for the experimental study of crystal-optical features as in optical rotation, electro-optic responses or simple birefringence. Devices for measuring those features are custom build and, in case of birefringence, made available via licensing through the center for commercialization as software/blueprint combinations.
