Better XRD data quality, analysis & interpretation (Perth 2020)

X-ray diffraction has undoubtedly been integral towards materials science research. We want to gather the XRD community to share knowledge and gain ideas on how to improve materials research. As a part of ongoing series of Malvern Panalytical’s XRD workshops across the Asia Pacific region, we have invited our leading specialists from our supply center in the Netherlands, Dr Thomas Deagen, who is the software developer for our HighScore Plus as well as Dr Detlef Beckers, Lead Scientist XRD to share their knowledge. 

Interested to learn more about XRD applications and the latest analytical solutions?
Malvern Panalytical is a proud platinum sponsor at AXAA 2020, which would be hosted at Bond University from 29 April till 1 May. Look forward to an interactive line up of analytical solutions from XRD, elemental analysis using XRF, fusion sample preparations, particle size distribution analysis.
