X-ray diffraction has undoubtedly been integral towards materials science research. We want to gather the XRD community to share knowledge and gain ideas on how to improve materials research. For the upcoming series of Malvern Panalytical’s XRD workshops across the Asia Pacific region, we have invited our leading specialist, Dr Umesh Tiwari, to share his knowledge. We are proud to be partnering the Chapter of Singapore Crystallographers and NTU FACTS for this workshop. 

Dr Tiwari is the Global Product Manager for Malvern Panalytical, specialising in advanced materials. His specialty is in thin films research using X-ray diffraction. Alongside esteemed researchers from Nanyang Technological University - Dr Samuel Morris and Dr Liu Weiling, the team will take you through the basics of X-ray diffraction.

In this tailored XRD workshop, we will focus a lot on learning how to collect good data as well as how to properly analyse and interpret the data. Dr Tiwari will showcase how to perform phase identification, phase quantification as well as Rietveld refinement on Malvern Panalytical's HighScore software. As this is a hands on session, each participant will be issued a trial software license. Please bring along your laptop for this classroom exercise.
