Remote Access to TTU X-Ray Diffraction Lab

Tennessee Technological University (TTU) recently recieved two grants to establish a state-of-the-art X-ray diffraction laboratory.  Thanks to support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) the laboratory is now accessible (view and text chat only) via an Internet link.  This page provides instructions for downloading the required software and scheduling a session with one of our instructors or X-ray scientists.

To obtain remote access you will need to download the following zipped file:  TTU-xrd-remote

After clicking on the above link, you need to right click on the TTU-xrd-remote icon and select “Save Target As,” this will prompt you for a location to save the zip file.  Once you download the zipped file, right click on it and select “Extract All,” this will permit you to specify a location and file name to extract into.  Once extracted, go to the location and file name where you saved the un-zipped files and double click on the “xrd-remote” icon.  This will open your remote access Internet link.  Unless you have scheduled a session, your link may not display anything other than a blank page.  If a scheduled session is taking place, you will be able to join that session.  To schedule a session for your class or lab, you must contact Brian Bates.
