Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Acquaint the students with advanced method in crystallography. Student will be informed about neutron diffraction, synchrotron sources and XFEL facilities. Beside the routine crystal structure determination become familiar also with the charge density studies and electronic structure.
Course contents:
1. Symmetry operations. Direct and reciprocal lattice
- rotation axis, inversion axis, glide planes, centrum of symmetry
- International tables for Crystallography

2. X-ray radiation. X-ray diffraction
- origin of X-ray radiation, synchrotron, Bragg's law

3. Ewald construction. Structure factor.

4. Factors affecting the intensity of difraction
- absorption correction, Lp- correction, secondary extinction

5. Fourier transformation. Phase problem methods.
- Patterson synthesis, direct methods

6. Model refinement of the crystal structure.
- crystallographic software, disorder, modulated structure, error analysis

7. Crystallographis databses.
- Cambridge structural database, statistical treatment of structural data

8. Metódy práškovej analýzy.
- quality, quantity, crystal structure from powder data

9. Huge facilities for structural analysis.
- neutron reactor, synchrotron, XFEL

10. Neutronography, spin density.
- sample requirements, magnetic structure, spin density

11. Interpretation of the structural results.
- interpretation and visualisation of the crystal structure, interpretation of publishes structural results

12. Data collection of accurate structure factors for multipolar refinement.
- quality of single crystal, data collection at low temperature, error analysis

13. Charge density analysis. AIM analysis.
- relation of the experimental and theoretical electronic structure and their correlation to chemical and physico-chemical properties
