6.1.1. Overview

| top | pdf |

In this chapter we shall discuss the production of the most suitable X-ray beams for data collection from single crystals of macromolecules. This subject covers the generation of X-rays and the conditioning or selection of the X-ray beam that falls on the sample with regard to intensity, cross section, degree of parallelism and spectral composition. The conclusions drawn do not necessarily apply to smaller-unit-cell crystals or to noncrystalline samples.
