Event Name

Third Annual School on Advanced Neutron Diffraction Treatment using the FullProf Suite

Start Date 2nd May 2010
End Date 8th May 2010

FullProf School-2010, 2-7 May, 2010

Chair:            Juan Rodriguez-Carvajal 
Co-chairs:     Marie-Hélène Lemée-Cailleau, Gabriel Cuello

Scientific scope:

Precise crystallography has significantly contributed to the success and recent developments in materials science, solid state physics and chemistry. Among the available programs for diffraction data analysis, the FULLPROF SUITE is one of the most widely used packages by the scientific community working in these fields.  

By creating a regular school on the FULLPROF SUITE, our aim is to contribute directly to the training of the upcoming generation of scientists. These intensive, hands-on, schools are focus on the analysis of diffraction data with the FULLPROF SUITE. 

After two successful issues, 2008 on "heterogeneous data coming from powders, single crystals, X-rays and time-of-flight neutron diffraction" and 2009 on "Magnetism", the third school, FPSchool 2010, took place in Grenoble from 2 to 7 May. It continued with the tradition of dedicating the first part to generalities and the second part of the school to a more specialized topic: complete diffraction-data treatment under constraints (powders and single crystals) using a symmetry mode approach for extended ionic/covalent materials and rigid body constraints for molecular materials.


The school lasted 5 days: three days dedicated to general applications plus two days dedicated to the specialised topic that will change each year. This year the school was mainly devoted to under constraint refinements.

Theoretical introductory lectures (max. 1 hour/lecture) were followed by hands-on practical computing sessions. The afternoon was mostly dedicated to practical sessions.
