IUCr Lattice Parameter Project

The IUCr is sponsoring a project to assess the accuracy and precision of the lattice parameters measured in the laboratory. To this end, kits containing mounted crystals and their approximate orientation matrices are being sent to crystallographers all around the world. Crystallographers will be asked to spend approximately a day centering crystals, measuring angles and cell constants, and recording data. At the conclusion of their experiments, the participants can anonymously ftp their data to project headquarters at the Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute, where the data will be pooled and analyzed.

We are looking for additional crystallographers to participate in this project during the next 6 to 8 months. Interested parties can e-mail Mary Jo Kirisits at kirisits@hwi.buffalo.edu for more information.
