XRD hands-on learning workshop

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 specialist, Dr Marco Sommariva, to share his knowledge.

Interested to learn more about XRD applications and the latest analytical solutions?
Join us at AXAA 2020, which would be hosted at Bond University from 29 April till 1 May. We are a proud platinum sponsor. Look forward to an interactive line up of analytical solutions from XRD, elemental analysis using XRF, fusion sample preparations, particle size distribution analysis as well as as near infra-red.

About Dr Marco Sommariva, Head Application Specialist for XRD Competency Center from our HQ in the Netherlands

Dr Sommariva studied Material Science in Milan (Italy), with a thesis on synthesis and characterization of solid electrolytes for lithium batteries. Marco then moved on with a post-doc at the British ISIS neutron source working on a project about complex hydrides for hydrogen storage, before joining Malvern Panalytical in 2011. He is the head of Malvern Panalytical's XRD Competency Center in the Netherlands.
