Large scale facilities for quantum crystallography research

Comments

Large scale facilities including free electron lasers open new opportunities for advances in Quantum Crystallography Research. This is because of a very intense (brilliance) and focused beam and with a time structure that allows the measurement of very small or ultra-dilute samples at different time scales. It is possible to study transient species and fast chemical reactions as well as to perform also biological and geological studies. Additionally, neutron diffraction (spallation sources and reactors) plays a key role in quantum crystallographic research as the nature of neutron beams allow for interactions with the nuclei and the magnetic moment of unpaired electrons in the sample. Neutrons are scattered by all elements along with a deep penetration of the materials. Routinely, synchrotron and neutron facilities are complementary techniques which allow to analysis of the structural details of materials at the atomic scale. Contributions to this MS should go beyond the structural level and cover all quantum crystallography investigations resulting from experiments performed at large scale facilities including free electron lasers.
