X-Ray diffraction (XRD) technique is an important non-destructive material characterization analytical tool for investigating condensed matter in powder, single crystal and thin film forms. From research to production, XRD is an indispensable technique for material characterization providing detailed information about the internal lattice of crystalline substances. In order to creating a platform of XRD data analysis, directed towards young scientists and academicians, Malvern Panalytical is proudly partnering with Koneru Lakshmaiah Education Foundation for free 2 days online workshop by eminent Industrial specialists, Professors and Researchers.

This workshop serves to provide attendees with a good foundation for XRD experiments and analysis. Learn how you can extend your research applications with advanced XRD experiments like non-ambient powder XRD, nanomaterials to thin film research. Our experienced XRD scientists will not only provide practical tips on experimental set up, but also proper sample preparation, to choice of sample holders, to data analysis and interpretation. Look forward to show and tell sessions with experiments conducted on Malvern Panalytical's intelligent Empyrean multi-purpose XRD and Aeris compact XRD. See how the data is analysed and refined using Malvern Panalytical's HighScore software. All registrants may request a free academia license of the new HighScore version 5.0.
