XRD Short Course

March 4, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

This introductory course will cover basic principles of X-ray diffraction (XRD), 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 1 hour theory component (taught by Assoc. Prof. Jacob Jones), 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 at for this information and other requirements to gain future access to the instruments).

For more details and to register, please contact Dr. Ching-Chang Chung at his email

Course limited to 10 people.
