X-ray core facility

Welcome to the website of the University of Ottawa X-ray Core Facility!


The X-ray Core Facility is located in room 028A in the new STEM complex. The facility provides sample analysis via single crystal x-ray diffraction (SCXRD), powder x-ray diffraction (PXRD) and x-ray fluorescence (XRF).  The three techniques are complementary and are routinely used by material scientists, chemists, biochemists, physicists, geologists, mineralogists, and engineers.

For any inquiries please contact Jeff Ovens.
