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. Applications span from battery to catalysts, to clinker, colour pigments, layer coatings and more.

In our earlier series of XRD data analysis webinars, we covered the fundamentals to the physics behind the technique, how to prepare good samples, how to improve your overall data quality as well as how to analyse. In this webinar, our senior application specialist, Dr Daniel Lee, who is based in Seoul, provides a live demonstration of how to perform more advanced phase quantification. He will demonstrate with several data sets on Malvern Panalytical’s new version of HighScore Plus.

This webinar will focus on crystallinity calculation; mainly using the:
1. internal standard
2. external standard
3. HKL method (or PONCKS)
4. profile fitting
