X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Short Course
January 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
This introductory XRD short course will cover basic principles of X-ray diffraction, operation of diffractometers in Bragg-Brentano geometry (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 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. In order to facilitate authorization to use the equipment, participants are encouraged to take the Analytical X-ray Safety offered by EH&S (see details here for this information and other requirements to gain future access to the instruments). The course is limited to 6 people.
To register, add yourself to the short course through AIF’s lab management software, Mendix. Click here to watch a short video on how to register for a short course in Mendix. Select “Sign up for a Short Course.”
Registration costs: $50 for academic, government, and non-profit participants; $350 for industry participants.
