Event Info

This introductory course to X-ray Diffraction will cover the basics of the crystalline state, the theory of how X-rays interact with crystalline matter and how to run an X-ray diffraction experiment with a few tips and tricks. The talk will be split up into two 45-minute sessions, by the end of which you will be able to take your crystalline powder, obtain an X-ray diffraction pattern and understand the basics of how to analyse it.


This talk will be given by Dr. Samuel A. Morris, who currently runs the single-crystal diffractometer in FACTS while researching novel applications and structures of porous materials, focusing on variable-temperature, -gaseous environments and –electric potential in-situ cells for diffraction techniques.
