A new state-of-the-art Bruker single-crystal X-ray diffractometer, with air-cooled high-sensitivity and high dynamic range Photon III detector and dual-source molybdenum and copper microfocus X-ray tubes, is now installed in the X-Ray Lab, W436, and is available for data collection.  The new instrument was funded primarily by the National Science Foundation's Division of Chemistry.  Dr. Dale Swenson observed the successful installation last week by a Bruker technician.  The diffractometer can generate molecular structures in minutes to several hours.
