Platinum Resistance Thermometer
This thermometer works on the principle of resistance
through a fine platinum wire as a function of temperature,
and was used when precision measurements were required.

The University has been carrying out important research into X-ray crystallography for over 50 years.
The two cameras shown below were used in teaching the subject and for recording data.
Unicam Rotation Camera
This simple but effective camera was used for photographing single crystals. It was developed in the 1930s and sold up to the 1960s. It could also be used as a Debye-Scherrer camera for powdered samples.
Leeds Weissenberg Camera
This camera was purchased by Dr John Iball in 1950 for macromolecular photography, and was used in the department up to 1998. It was designed in Leeds by Professor Ernest Cox, and was a significant development on the original Weissenberg camera invented in the 1920s.
