Local structure of crystalline materials using PDF analysis

This workshop will be run as a satelite meeting to the main ECM28 meeting in Warwick.

The aim of this workshop is provide an introduction to total scattering analysis (aka PDF) of crystalline.

The topics covered will include how to collect the diffraction data, how to produce the corrected total scattering and how to model the data and extract the useful information. It is hoped the final programme will be modified to meet the needs of the workshop participants.

The workshop will be held over two full days starting in the morning of the 30th August after the main ECM meeting.

The registration fee (including tea, coffee and lunch on both days ) is £100.

Registration (including accommodation bookings not included in the registration fee) will be via the ECM28 website. Participants should book accommodation for the 30th August.

If you would like to just register for the workshop please email me for details.

More detail will appear here as they become available. So please check back or email Matt Tucker to find out more.
