XRD Rietveld analysis

XRD Rietveld analysis

The XRD Rietveld course (2 days) focuses on qualitative and quantitative Rietveld analysis, using HighScore Plus. The course covers measurement strategies, data treatment, crystallographic analysis (indexing and unit cell refinement), theoretical basis of the Rietveld method, Rietveld analysis, amorphous content determination and structural size/strain calculations using the Rietveld method.

Course content

During the course the following topics will be discussed:

  • Theoretical basis of the Rietveld method
  • Rietveld analysis: simulation of powder diffractogram from structural data
  • Refinement of crystal structure data from powder measurements
  • Standardless quantitative phase analysis

Course details

Language: English
Course duration: 2 days
Number of participants: minimum – 3, maximum – 12.

Requirements: Experienced in XRD analysis is highly recommended.
A good basis is the Basic XRD course.
