SMART ~ Siemens Molecular Analytical Research Tool was selected by more than 75 scientific experts in a variety of disciplines for the 1994 R & D 100 Award.
SMART's new leap forward in technology is as the first commercial single crystal diffractometer system to incorporate a two dimensional CCD detector.
Scientists see SMART as opening new areas in their research by allowing them to collect data on crystals which were too small or weakly diffracting for other systems. Dr L. F. Dahl, the R.E. Rudle and Hilldale Professor of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, is so enthused by SMART that he stated: "I would predict that within two years at least one half of the X ray diffractometer systems being purchased will be CCD area detectors."
