2014 is the UN International Year of Crystallography, celebrating 100 years since X-ray diffraction allowed scientists to study the detailed structure of crystalline materials. Now crystallography is used in almost all scientific disciplines, from geologists analysing and dating meteorites to chemists synthesising new drugs to fight diseases.

This online session will outline the scientific principles behind crystallography, how it is being used currently, and the problems it could help to solve in the future. Potential career paths and in-class activities will also be discussed.
