Welcome to the 2nd X-ray diffraction school of the X-ray Corelab / 6th-17th May 2019

in situ temperature-dependent diffraction


The HZB X-ray Corelab kindly offers the second X-ray school for master and PhD students at Lise-Meitner-Campus.

The aim of the course is to train participants in various X-ray diffraction methods that they can apply them in their current scientific project. The school will focus on phase analysis applying crystallographic databases, crystal structure analysis at ambient and non-ambient conditions. Thin film analysis like depth profiling, reflectivity, texture, and epitaxy will be introduced as well.

As an outcome from the first X-ray school we expanded the 2nd school to have more time for general introduction and hands-on experiments as well as for detailed evaluation and discussions. For effectiveness, the school will be offered in the way of modules. It will start with a mandatory general module. Afterwards the school will be split into a powder diffraction and a thin film analysis module which separately or both can be attended.

Looking forward to seeing you at our 2nd X-ray school,

Michael Tovar, René Gunder, Susan Schorr
