Welcome to the Centre for Crystallography

 The Crystallography Centre at NUI Galway is dedicated to the determination of molecular structure by X-ray diffraction techniques. Our interests cover small molecule single crystal structure determination, powder diffraction and crystal habit prediction. 

The Centre has developed an integrated WINDOWS software system, Oscail, for small molecule structure determination and visualisation which uses SHELX, Superflip, ORTEX and Raster3D. Software for the simulation of POWDER patterns has also been developed. 

We provide crystallography services for industry on a regular basis.
