Malvern Panalytical is pleased to offer a 3-day in person HighScore Plus XRD User Training: Quantitative Phase Analysis and Rietveld Refinement.
This course is focused on using whole pattern fitting techniques, such as the Rietveld method, for quantitative phase analysis (QPA) of X-ray powder diffraction data.
Instruction is focused on the applications of quantitative phase analysis and amorphous quantification using advanced whole pattern fitting techniques such as the Rietveld method, direct derivative method (DDM), PONKCS, and using batches to automate analysis. The principals of the Rietveld method explored in the class are applicable to other analyses, such as crystallite size calculations and crystal structure refinement, but these applications will not be directly taught during the live sessions. These other topics, which often interest some but not all attendees of the class, will be covered in prerecorded videos. This course assumes that you know the basics of using HighScore for phase identification (ie search-match). If you do not, it is highly recommended that you attend the “HighScore Basic XRD User Training” course.
Most of the advanced techniques taught in this course require the Plus option for HighScore. A temporary copy can be provided if you do not already own HighScore Plus (or if you are attending the course from a home computer), but please remember that you will not be able to use these capabilities in the future without the Plus option for HighScore.
The following aspects will be covered during the course:
- Theory of X-ray fluorescence and instrumentation
- Qualitative and Quantitative analysis
- Application Setup
- Calibration, Matrix effect and Sources of errors
- Performing measurements
- Drift monitors, their implementation and practical use
- Introduction to Omnian standardless analysis
- Sample preparation of fused beads, pressed pellets, loose powders and liquids
