Online applications can be submitted until 22nd January 2016, at the Powder Diffraction & Rietveld Refinement School 2016 website: http://community.dur.ac.uk/john.evans/webpages/pdrr_school_2016.htm
The 2016 Powder Diffraction and Rietveld Refinement School will be held at the University of Durham from Sunday 10th April to Thursday 14th of April. Lectures will be given by Jeremy Cockcroft, Andy Fitch, John Evans and Ivana Evans. There will also be small group tutorials and a large number of hands-on practical computer sessions.
Take a look at: Tutorial Page
On line application.
Topics to be covered will include:
- Data collection strategies for X-ray and neutron diffraction
- Constant wavelength and time of flight diffraction
- Modelling peak shapes
- Indexing powder patterns
- Rietveld, Le Bail and Pawley fitting methods
- X-ray and neutron combined Rietveld refinement
- Extended solids and molecular systems
- Restrained refinements
- Rigid body refinements
Magnetic refinements will not be explicitly covered.
Accommodation will be at Grey College Durham and lectures/computer workshops will be held in/near the Chemistry Department. Durham is on the fast east coast rail track. London is ~2.75 hours and Edinburgh 2 hours. There are a number of cheap flights to Newcastle Airport (e.g. flybe to Exeter/Southampton; Easy Jet to Bristol/Stanstead/Geneva/Nice, etc). More travel information can be found here.
