Billing Scheme


Effective September first 2014, the rates for services of the X-Ray Diffraction Facility will be as follows:

  MIT Chemistry Department Other MIT customers Other non-profit cusotmers For-profit customers
Data Collection $400 $400 $624 $1000
Structure Determination $360 $360 $562 $1200
Examination $200 $200 $312 $400
Unit Cell Determination $100 $100 $156 $200
Powder Diffractogram $100 $100 $156 $200

A "Unit Cell Determination" is any diffraction experiment during which between 5 and 60 frames (150 frames for Cu radiation) are collected. If more than 60 frames (150 for Cu radiation) are collected, another price category applies.

An "Examination" is any diffraction experiment during which between 60 and 400 frames for Mo radiation or between 150 and 1000 frames for Cu radiation are collected. A project that results in collection of fewer frames than the specifed number is billed as "Unit Cell Determination". If more than 400 frames for Mo or 1000 frames for Cu radiation are collected, the project will be billed as "Data Collection".

Free of charge for members of the MIT community will remain assistance with structure solution or refinement, training, consultations etc.
