Towards molecular movies: exploring reaction dynamics using electron diffraction

  • Wann, Derek (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


Electron diffraction has been used for many years as a static method for measuring structure. By using a continuous beam of electrons one can determine the time-averaged structure of a molecule over a period of several seconds. These data are useful as they can be linked to the way that molecule behaves to further understand how structure and function are related. We will soon be using very short bunches of electrons to study changes in structure that occur on the femtosecond timescale.
