Lmx science

What science can Lmx do?

LMX will contribute substantially to two of the TS2 science themes, namely advanced materials and biomolecular sciences, with a significant but smaller contribution in the third area of soft condensed matter. Thus, an outstanding opportunity is presented which tackles some of the exciting and leading edge areas in chemistry and structural biology which are currently not within the scope of existing ISIS instrumentation and not yet well catered for at neutron facilities internationally. The common features of the science areas to benefit from LMX can be summarised as follows: 

  1. neutron diffraction adds significant value to information offered by other techniques, notably X-ray diffraction;
  2. the materials to be studied will often have larger unit cells; and/or
  3. available crystal size will be limited;
  4. the problems are beyond the scope of the current ISIS TS1 instrument SXD.
