J.D. McCullough Crystallography Laboratory (MIC)

For more than 40 years the J.D. McCullough Laboratory of X-ray Crystallography has been in operation, providing 3-dimensional structure of small molecules in solid crystals via X-ray crystallography. The facility is also equipped for characterization of polycrystalline solid materials using powder and thin film diffraction techniques. The laboratory is a full service facility where staff deals with all aspects of service from crystal selection to publication of results. In-house training is a requirement if you wish to use the equipment yourself. The laboratory is a part of the UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center, which is a campus wide facility open to the UCLA community. The facility also collaborates with personnel from other universities and industry both locally and internationally.
