Research topics

The staff at the Institute of Crystallography does research on crystal structures using neutron and x-ray radiation under the guidance of Professor Georg Roth. The goals include a further development of diffraction and scattering methods as well as an application of these methods to elucidate structure-property relationships in modern materials.
