NYU X-Ray Diffraction Workshop 2016


NYU X-Ray Diffraction Workshop
Department of Chemistry, New York University
June 29 - 30, 2016


The Workshop will span two days at New York University, with lectures and hands-on training on the X-ray diffraction methods. The Workshop will include lectures from various academic and industrial organizations. Faculty, graduate students, postdocs, and industrial researchers are invited to register. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of interest to the workshop for the hands-on training Master Class, and scientific problems to the Round-Table Discussion.

Aims
•    Non-specialists can learn the basics of the X-ray diffraction and receive hands-on training on the operation of the instruments.
•    Experts from similar or related areas can share experience and exchange ideas.

Topics
•    Basics on single crystal and powder diffraction and the instruments
•    Crystallization
•    Polymorphism and phase transition
•    Phase identification, quantitative analysis, texture analysis, and crystallite size measurement
•    Applications of X-ray powder diffraction in industry
•    Synchrotron radiation
