European Crystallographic Conference BASEL, Switzerland


Powder-diffraction methods have demonstrated an ever increasing range of applications in materials science, chemistry, physics, life sciences and engineering. Modern synchrotron-radiation methods not only provide data of exceptional quality, but have allowed previously inaccessible experiments to be performed. Along with determining the atomic structure and the relative abundance of crystalline phases in bulk samples, information on disordered materials, microstructural features, defects and their evolution in response to external stimuli over a wide range of timescales is now possible. The school, with an updated in-depth programme, aims at giving a broad overview of all the modern possibilities using synchrotron radiation, starting with a general theoretical introduction to the various methods and applications. Hands-on practicals with selected synchrotron XRPD experiments and exhaustive analysis of the collected data are the central part of the school and will provide the student with a solid fundamental understanding of these essential and versatile experimental techniques.
