X-ray diffraction has undoubtedly been integral towards materials science research. We want to gather the XRD community to share knowledge and gain ideas on how to improve materials research. For the upcoming series of Malvern Panalytical’s XRD workshops across the Asia Pacific region, we have invited our leading application specialist, Dr Olga Narygina, to share her knowledge. 

Alongside esteemed researchers from the University of New South Wales, she will take you through a 2 day programme covering the topics of proper sample preparation, hands on analysis using our latest tabletop XRD - Aeris and data analysis.
