Multi-wavelength anomalous dispersion
Multi-wavelength anomalous dispersion (sometimes Multi-wavelength anomalous diffraction; abbreviated MAD) is a technique used in X-ray crystallography that facilitates the determination of protein structures by allowing the solution of the phase problem. It uses X-rays of different wavelengths, relieving crystallographers from having to make several different metal-containing crystals.
Additional recommended knowledge
Two methods for providing the needed phasing information by introducing heavy atoms into isomorphous crystals:
