The October edition of the Crystallography Times newsletter is online


THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The October edition of Crystallography Times from Rigaku Corporation is now available on the company's global website. Crystallography Times is an electronic newsletter published by Rigaku, serving the X-ray analysis community. It presents current news and crystallographic research, focusing on single crystal X-ray diffraction.

The new issue debuts a new format, designed to enhance readability, and includes information about, and registration access for, the upcoming Advanced Topics in Practical Crystallography lecture series taking place Dec. 7?11, 2020. The series will cover Powder and PDF Data Collection and Processing, High Pressure Cell Data Collection and Processing, Using Ewald3D, and Non-spherical Atom Renement with NoSpherA2.

The "Crystallography in the News" feature highlights the latest developments in protein and small molecule crystallography. One story features news about scientists at CalTech, HHMI and Rockefeller University determining the structures of eight COVID-19 human neutralizing antibodies to help better develop therapeutic strategies.

The spotlight product for October is the Rigaku XtaLAB Synergy-R high-flux rotating anode X-ray diffractometer. It was designed to address the increasing need to investigate smaller and smaller samples in crystallo-graphic research. Increased flux from a PhotonJet-R microfocus rotating anode X-ray source enables examination of significantly smaller crystals than previously possible, as well as delivering increased data collection speed for normal-sized crystals.

The "Lab in the Spotlight" feature presents the Northwestern University Integrated Molecular Structure Education and Research Center (IMSERC). Research projects focus on the structural characterization of layered distorted chalcogenide materials that possess usually incommensurate modulated superstructures

The October Crystallography Times also offers useful links to an open-access database of crystal structures of organic, inorganic, metal-organics compounds and minerals, and an online resource for the sharing and borrowing of educational resources for crystallography.

Featured videos, book reviews, a reader survey and access to the Rigaku X-ray Forum are also included.
