Advanced XRD workshop: Rietveld, in-situ, PDF analysis (Singapore)

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. During this free workshop, learn how to perform advanced X-ray diffraction analysis like Rietveld, in-situ and PDF. This is a continuation to our earlier workshop on powder analysis and how to achieve better data quality. Based on your earlier feedback, we have now extended the programme to 2 days, to cater more time for hands on learning and discussions.  

For the upcoming series of Malvern Panalytical’s XRD workshops across the Asia Pacific region, We are proud to be partnering the Chapter of SIngapore Crystallographers - Dr Samuel Morris as well as Nanyang Technological University's FACTS laboratory. In addition to Dr Morris, we have specially invited our application specialist from the Netherlands, Dr Martin Schreyer together with Global Manager for Advanced Materials, Dr Umesh Tiwari. Together, they will share practical examples, applications and experimental set ups, in order to achieve better data quality, analysis and interpretation. Registration is free - because we believe in continual education. Limited spaces, so please register asap. 

Interested in more data analysis and interpretation workshops?

Malvern Panalytical's crystallographers will be delivering a free workshop on battery and hard radiation applications on 18th December 2019 during the 16th Conference of the Asian Crystallographic Association (AsCA). We are a proud gold sponsor of AsCA. For more information about our interactive activities at the booth and during the conference, click here.


Dr Samuel Morris

Dr Morris is a key member of the Crystallographic Association. He primarily uses X-ray diffraction (single-crystal, powder and PDF) to study the structure of a variety of materials, specializing in advanced in-situ studies of porous materials using synchrotron radiation. Dr Morris undertook his undergraduate and Masters of Chemistry at The University of Southampton, UK and his PhD at The University of St Andrews, UK. Dr Morris is now a Research Fellow at FACTS, a characterization centre at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Dr Martin Schreyer 
Dr Schreyer is an inorganic chemist converted to powder diffractionist with nearly 25 years of experience. His areas of expertise are in the research on heterogeneous catalysts, structure solution from PXRD data and polymers and other powder research involving in-situ and SAXS applications. He completed his PhD at the University of Bonn (Germany) in 2001 on the hunt for new superconducting transition metal oxides. He then gradually migrated southwards with postdoc positions at TU Darmstadt and TU München.

In 2005, he accepted a teaching fellow position at Nanyang Technological University. He spent the next three years teaching students about crystallography and materials characterization. 2008 marked another change to more research, when he joined the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences as a Senior Research Fellow (later Scientist II). In November 2018, Dr Schreyer joined Malvern Panalytical as an Application Specialist. His daily routine involves providing application support to customers in terms of recommending the type of instrumentation and experimental techniques according to their research. This includes also conducting tests on customer samples, testing new equipment, training customers and sharing his research or Malvern Panalytical research applications at events.

Dr Umesh Tiwari
Dr Tiwari is the Global Product Manager for Advanced Materials at Malvern Panalytical. He has close to 20 years of experience in X-ray analytical methodology, instrumentation and analytical techniques. Prior to joining Malvern Panalytical, he worked with Tata Research as well as the Solid State Physics Laboratory as a senior scientist in India. He specializes in materials analysis using X-ray diffraction, particularly for pharmaceuticals, semiconductor, energy and data storage, cement, metals and industrial minerals.
