About the Course

The course style (remote or hybrid) is defined next to the course dates. Remote training courses will be hosted via video conference, while for hybrid courses attendees can choose to attend either in-person at our Karlsruhe facility or remotely. The training content will be the same in both instances.

This training course will show the theoretical fundamentals, sample preparation techniques, and methods in qualitative phase analysis with the D2 and D8 family of diffractometers. The focus is on powder diffraction using the DIFFRAC.SUITE software packages including DIFFRAC.EVA. The course will be conducted in either English or German, as shown on the course schedule page.

Remote courses will contain a morning and afternoon session.
