U. Schüßler,  room 213,  Phone 31-85422,  uli.schuessler@uni-wuerzburg.de

Regulation for the use of X-ray units of the Department:

In particular for the use of the X-ray diffractometer, the following, absolutely binding rules apply:

On the device may basically only be worked

  • after consultation with one of the x-ray protection officers
  • in the presence or accessibility of one of the x-ray protection officers
  • after X-ray instruction with signature, valit for 12 months
  • after device instruction with signature
  • when carrying a measurement protocol in the device user book

Faults of any kind in the measurement instruments must be reported immediately to the responsible laboratory supervisor or X-ray protection officer.

Independent manipulations, “repairs”, etc. on the equippment, which go beyond the learned during the instruction are strictly prohibited.

Children and adolescents as well as pregnant women are not allowed to enter the laboratories.
