Materials research has been instrumental towards a better quality of life. Without pushing the limits of science, we wouldn’t be having better, safer, longer lasting electronics, plastic components and more. Undoubtedly, X-ray diffraction (XRD) has been integral towards materials science research.

Malvern Panalytical has proudly organised X'raydiate symposiums on a regular basis to bring the XRD community together. In this edition, our theme focuses on improving the world we live in with XRD. We are honoured to have renowned professors and researchers as invited speakers who will share their research applications. Addressing this symposium is a specially invited guest from Malvern Panalytical's supply center in the Netherlands, Dr Gwilherm Nénert. He will share cutting-edge research using advanced XRD techniques including non-ambient, small angle X-ray scattering, PDF and more.

Moreover, look out for the exciting launch of our third generation multipurpose X-ray diffractometer. Experimental set up is often a concern and with the Empyrean III series which comes equipped with our multi-core optics, manual intervention is no longer required. With built in artificial intelligence, you can now seamlessly switch between experimental stages at the click of a button. Certainly, a perfect companion for advanced XRD research in academia.
