Remote training courses will be hosted via video conference and will cover the same topics as the courses hosted at our Karlsruhe facility. The course will be broken up into a morning session and afternoon session (participants will attend both). Course work will include lecture sessions on principles of X-ray analysis as well as training sessions with different software packages. Participants will receive a customized virtual training environment complete with latest software versions and exercises.
This training course will show the different methods used for quantitative phase analysis, with the focus on using the DIFFRAC.TOPAS software package. The course is intended for users with experience in XRD, new users are strongly encouraged to first attend the X-ray Powder Diffraction Basics course. The course will be conducted in either English or German, as shown on the course schedule page.
This course takes place in the same week as the “Powder Diffraction Basics” course.
Remote courses will contain a morning and afternoon session.
