X-ray Diffraction Short Course

September 7, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

$50 – $350

NC State’s Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) is giving a hands-on short course on X-ray Diffraction (XRD). This introductory course will cover basic principles of X-ray diffraction, operation of diffractometers in Bragg-Brentano geometry (that typically used for powders), and basic phase identification. It is meant for first-time XRD users and/or those interested in learning phase identification and pattern matching in HighScore software. The course will include a 1-hour theory component, 1-hour of phase identification training in the AIF Data Analysis center, and 1-3 hours of a practical component in the XRD lab (as needed). After completion of this course and the EH&S course on Analytical X-ray Safety, attendees will be able to independently operate a diffractometer in basic mode.

For more details and to register, please contact Dr. Ching-Chang Chung at his email cchung4@ncsu.eduCourse limited to 10 people. Registration costs: $50 for academic, government, and non-profit participants; $350 for industry participants.
