PHYSICAL CHARACTERIZATION

Introduction to Low Angle Powder X-ray Diffraction Training

Powder X-ray diffraction is one of the most commonly used characterization techniques in a wide range of scientific communities, including chemistry and material science as a fingerprint method. D8 Advance uses Bragg-Brentano ge- ometry to collect data in 2 theta direction. Powders and polycrystalline thin films can be measured. This course introduces the Bragg-Brentano Geometry, the D8 Advance machine, and the capabilities of the instrument for different types of samples. One-on-one training will teach users about sample preparation, data collection, evaluation, and qualification. General lab safety will also be discussed. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST who are interested in making X-ray phase analysis, profile fitting, peak indexing and unit cell parameter determination, and Rietveld refinement.

This course is offered to users whose samples show substantial X-ray diffraction peaks at low angles, 2-theta angle below 5 degrees. One-on-one training will be given on the D8 Advance machine. The user will be introduced to the utilization of the beam-stop, optimization of the divergent slit size and detector opening to reduce the direct-beam intensity at low 2-theta angles, and result evaluation and qualification. General lab safety will also be discussed. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST whose samples show low-angle diffraction peaks.
