Improving the world we live in

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. As we gather the XRD community in Singapore to celebrate science and innovation within the field.

In this inaugural symposium on improving the world we live in with XRD, we are honoured to be in the presence of international scientists from Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore and more. Addressing this symposium is a specially invited guest from Malvern Panalytical's supply center in the Netherlands, Dr Martin Schreyer.
They will share their cutting-edge research including non-ambient, small angle X-ray scattering, thin film, PDF, battery components and more.

Moreover, look out for the exciting launch of our multipurpose X-ray diffractometer, the Empyrean, which comes fully equipped with artificial intelligence to seamlessly switch between experimental stages. Certainly, a perfect companion for advanced XRD research in academia.
