X-ray diffraction is a powerful technique for the analysis of materials, elucidating information about structure, content as well as physical and intrinsic characteristics of any number of sample types. Beyond powder and solids, the latest XRD techniques samples can also apply to amorphous and even liquid samples. This webinar goes back to the basics of what X-ray diffraction is all about at a very fundamental level. Also discussed are how to achieve optimal results and why more and more people are utilizing this technique in their day to day laboratory environment. This webinar is geared towards those having little to no experience in X-ray diffraction with a desire to learn more about the technique and what answers it can give to common materials analysis questions.
