Imaging Plates in Synchrotron and Conventional X-Ray Crystallographic Data Collection
Languages of publication
Application of two-dimensional detectors based on imaging plates for X-ray crystallographic data collection is discussed. The properties of imaging plates are somewhat different from those of other available X-ray detectors, like film, multiwire ionization chambers, TV tubes or scintillation counters. Imaging plate scanners are well suited for laboratory X-ray sources as well as for strong synchrotron radiation. Originally developed for macromolecular crystallography, they can be used successfully to collect data on crystals of small or medium size molecules.
