Two-Dimensional X-ray Powder Diffractometry.
Ron Jenkins and Robert L. Snyder, Introduction to X-ray Powder Diffractometry. Wiley (1996).
Over the years, the development of procedures, techniques, and advanced equipment have greatly enhanced the versatility of the method. The purpose of the X-ray clinic is to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of the theoretical basis as well as the practical application and implementation of powder diffractometry in today’s laboratory. This knowledge and understanding is applicable whether the attendee works in academia, industry, or government laboratory, or whether they are a student, professor, researcher, or analyst.
WHY CHOOSE THE ICDD CLINICS? The purpose of the XRF and XRD clinics is to combine theoretical knowledge and practical applications of X-ray fluorescence spectrometry and X-ray powder diffractometry. Each clinic is a complete one week course of practical knowledge in the field. Clinic instructors have extensive experience in the field and are deliberately selected from both academia and industry to produce the best of theory and practice.
