McStas: ILL_H143_LADI Instrument at ILL

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The ILL_H143_LADI Instrument

The LADI protein crystallography cold Laue diffractometer



LADI-III is a quasi-Laue neutron diffractometer used for single-crystal studies
of biological macromolecules at high resolution (1.5 - 2.5Å) in order to locate
individual protons or deuterons of special interest, water structures or other
small molecules that can be marked with deuterium to be particularly visible.
Data collection is feasible for samples with unit-cell edges ranging from 50
to 150Å using crystal volumes from ~0.05 to 0.5mm3, respectively.

LADI-III uses a large cylindrical area detector composed of neutron-sensitive
image-plates, which completely surround the crystal and allows large numbers
of reflections to be recorded simultaneously. Data are collected using a
quasi-Laue method in order to provide a rapid survey of reciprocal space, while
reducing the background on the detector compared to use of the full white beam.
