The study of crystals and their structure by means of the diffraction of X-rays by the regularly spaced atoms of crystalline materials.
- The structures used in this study were all determined through X-ray crystallography.
- The goal of the mission is to bring back crystals grown in space, and analyse the crystals by X-ray crystallography.
- Hodgkin used X-ray crystallography to study the structure of biologically interesting molecules.
