In materials research, the scientist has many analytical questions related to the crystalline constitution of material samples. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is the only laboratory technique that reveals structural information, such as chemical composition, crystal structure, crystallite size, strain, preferred orientation and layer thickness. Materials researchers therefore use XRD to analyze a wide range of materials, from powder X-ray diffraction (XRPD) to solids, thin films and nanomaterials.

During this webinar, Dr Daniel Lee, Malvern Panalytical's senior XRD application specialist will be discussing how powder XRD research can be applied to many material types. Whether you are analyzing battery powders, geological samples, powder metallurgy for 3D printing, catalyst deterioration, respirable silica or pharmaceutical APIs, you can leverage on XRD. Use XRD to not only identify but also quantify any phase changes in your material. This has implications towards how you would want to prepare or optimise your materials or process. Not to mention, checking for phase changes helps companies to adhere to international standards like FDA, ASTM, ISO, OSHA and more.
