This course will teach customers how to use HighScore Plus software for quantitative analysis of X-ray powder diffraction data using whole pattern fitting techniques such as the Rietveld method. The primary focus is quantitative phase analysis, i.e. determining how much of each phase is present in a mixture, but other analyses will be discussed such as:
• Amorphous quantification
• Crystallite size and microstrain calculation
• Indexing and crystal structure refinement
• Batch analysis for analyzing large amounts of data
• Cluster analysis and PLSR (partial least squares regression) for multivariate statistical analyses of large amounts of data

Course cost:
• Industry $3200.
• Academia/Govt $1600
Includes mini breakfast and lunch on all days of the course. Travel, lodging and other meals not included.
