Event Name

Powder Diffraction and Rietveld Refinement School

Start Date 18th Apr 2010
End Date 22nd Apr 2010
The PCG/SCMP (Physical Crystallography Group of the British Crystallographic Association/Structural Condensed Matter Physics group of the Institute of Physics) will be holding the 2010 Rietveld refinement school at the University of Durham. The course will run from Sunday 18th to Thursday 22nd 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 practical hands-on computer sessions.

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
Thanks to our 2010 sponsors: the EPSRC, PCG-SCMP and IUCr.
