The Partnership for Extreme Crystallography facility is located at the 13-BM-C station at GSECARS at the Advanced Photon Source. It is designed to provide state-of-the art single-crystal and powder diffraction capabilities on a large 6-circle Newport diffractometer. The facility currently provides for x-ray diffraction capabilities, online Raman spectroscopy and laser heating will be available later in 2016.
