Event Name

International Workshop on X-ray Powder and Electron Crystallography

Start Date 8th Jul 2013
End Date 12th Jul 2013
Tutors: Detlef Beckers, Corrado Cuocci, Andrew N. Fitch, Mauro Gemmi, Carmelo Giacovazzo, Fabia Gozzo, Irene Margiolaki, Stavros Nicolopoulos, Rosanna Rizzi, Robert B. Von Dreele & Jonathan P. Wright.

Topics to be covered include:

  • FOR Powder Crystallography: powder diffraction (experimental methods, sample preparation, detectors, synchrotron radiation), the unit cell determination, full pattern powder decomposition, space group determination, ab initio and non ab initio phasing techniques for powder diffraction data, computer applications. Protein Powder Diffraction: Overview, methods & applications. 
  • FOR Electron Crystallography: The physical bases of the electron diffraction and their special features with respect to X-ray and neutron diffraction. The experimental diffraction methods : elements of electron microscopy, traditional diffraction techniques and modern ones (the Precession Electron Diffraction (PED) and the Automated Diffraction Tomography (ADT) methods).
  • Phasing via electron diffraction data: computer applications.

Student bursaries will be available to contribute to local costs or travel expenses of a limited number of applicants.
