Dr Nathan HalcovitchExperimental Officer in X-ray Techniques
I manage the X-ray facilities within the department of chemistry here at Lancaster University. This currently encompasses a Rigaku Oxford Diffraction SuperNova single crystal diffractometer, a Rigaku Smartlab powder diffractometer and a Shimadzu EDX-8000 X-ray fluorescence spectrophotometer. This instrumentation is also available through the collaborative technology access program (cTAP).
My role involves maintaining the instrumentation and offering support to users with anything from sample preparation to experiment design and final data analysis. If you are interested in using our facilities please do not hesitate to get in touch.
My research interests involve using X-ray diffraction techniques to determine structure in organic and inorganic compounds and porous materials.
