    Description

    The Gemini diffractometer is mounted with both fine focus molybdenum source and a high-intensity Enhance Ultra Cu X-ray source.

    The Ruby charge couple device, with its large active area, enables faster data collection than the Xcalibur. The Gemini can used for routine crystal structure determination with the intense Cu source making it particularly suitable for very small crystals or weakly diffracting samples. It is fitted with an Oxford Instruments Cryojet for data collection in the temperature range 90-300K.
