The International Centre for Diffraction Data has a commitment to provide quality educational products and services. Currently ICDD organizes and sponsors many educational pursuits, including the X-ray Diffraction and X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy Clinics, the Denver X-ray Conference, the Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction Symposium, the Rietveld Workshop, and the publication of the Educational Resource Package.
As part of our mission to support the dissemination of knowledge of X-ray diffraction throughout the scientific community, ICDD sponsors several clinics in X-ray powder diffractometry and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry. Operated by ICDD since 1990, the clinics offer training in both theoretical and practical applications.
ICDD offers a variety of educational products designated to teach and instruct both the new and experienced user. ICDD Clinics are taught by experienced instructors that have a variety of scientific backgrounds. This diversity enables the attendees to receive a blend of both theory and resultsoriented practical experience. The weeklong format provides in-depth training, not offered in most other workshops and symposia.
Learn through concise lectures and workshops on methods to improve your analysis, specimen preparation techniques, types and sources of error, components of the diffraction pattern, and qualitative phase identification.
For educators and instructors, ICDD offers the PDF-4+ database for educational instruction. Access is time-limited and password protected (in some cases). The Powder Diffraction File is complemented by the Educational Resource Package, which provides worked examples that utilize many database features. Please contact ICDD for further information.
Note - Academic Discounts are not available on any Clinics, Workshops, Conferences, and Symposiums.
