2015 ICDD Educational Training in XRF & XRD

12 February 2015

Practical XRF & XRD Training by the Industry's Leading Experts!
Sponsored by the International Centre for Diffraction Data
Live instrumentation, Hands‐on training and Theoretical lectures taught by a highly‐talented faculty
offering a wide range of application experience.

Practical X‐ray Fluorescence Spectrometry - 27 April ‐ 1 May 2015
From theory to hands‐on exercises, this course offers techniques and skills to improve lab performance. Discover the latest in cutting‐edge instruments such as TXRF, hand‐held devices, energy dispersive and wavelength dispersive spectrometers through live demonstrations.

Fundamentals of X‐ray Powder Diffraction - 1 ‐ 5 June 2015
The clinic covers instrumentation, specimen preparation, data acquisition and qualitative phase analysis. Hands‐on use of personal computers for demonstration of the latest data‐mining software with the Powder Diffraction File™. The powder diffractometer: optical arrangement, factors affecting instrumental profile width, choice and function of divergence slit, calibration and alignment, detectors, X‐ray optics.

Advanced Methods in X‐ray Powder Diffraction - 8 ‐ 12 June 2015
For the experienced XRD scientist, this session offers enhanced analysis skills through intense problem
solving, as well as an introduction to the Rietveld Method. This clinic emphasizes computer‐based methods of data collection and interpretation, both for qualitative and quantitative phase analysis.

Basic Rietveld Refinement & Indexing - 28 ‐ 30 September 2015
Advanced Rietveld Refinement & Indexing - 1 ‐ 2 October 2015

This workshop introduces the theory and formalisms of various indexing methods and structural refinement techniques. One unique aspect of this workshop is the extensive use of computer laboratory problem solving and exercises that teach method development in a hands‐on environment.

ICDD Clinic instructors have extensive experience in the field, and are deliberately selected from both academia and industry to produce the best of theory and practice. The focus on practical applications, hands‐on experience, and intense personal instruction differentiates ICDD clinics from other venues. Each clinic utilizes a team of instructors representing a range of expertise to meet your training needs.
