12 May 2015  This workshop will discuss the basis of quantitative phase analysis (QPA) for both single peak and whole pattern approaches. The focus will be on how to select and apply these methods, particularly in the context of the derivation of absolute phase abundances. The presence of poorly crystalline or amorphous content requires extension of the basic methods, but, once these are established, they can be shown to produce QPA to the similar lower limits of detection and accuracy as for crystalline phases.
