The ACNS Echidna and Wombat team are again working with the staff of the Powder Diffraction beamline of the Australian Synchrotron to bring our annual ‘Powder diffraction analysis for beginners’ course to life.
In the theme of 2020, the school will now be virtual, and will make access to lectures available (and free) to all who register. We hope also to run the practical elements of the course virtually, but will be restricting the numbers to these sessions, and prioritising those who already have data, or planning future experiments, with our facilities.
The dates of the course is set for 6th-8th October 2020.
This course would be ideal for honours and PhD students, as well as early-career researchers, who have powder diffraction data from ANSTO facilities. Also we hope that lectures would be of use to all who are exploring powder diffraction analysis.
The course is being organised by the ANSTO powder diffraction scientists, with support from Kelly Cubbin. Details/bios of the scientists involved will be updated shortly.
*Please note AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) starts Sunday, 4 October 2020
Registration deadline to be considered for the analysis practicals is the 22nd September, though if you only wish to register for the lecture component this will be open until 1st October
