XRD series: Helping researchers achieve better XRD data analysis and interpretation

In materials research, the scientist has many analytical questions related to the crystalline constitution of material samples. X-ray diffraction (XRD) is the only laboratory technique that reveals structural information, such as chemical composition, crystal structure, crystallite size, strain, preferred orientation and layer thickness. Materials researchers therefore use XRD to analyze a wide range of materials, from powder X-ray diffraction (XRPD) to solids, thin films and nanomaterials.

Interested to improve your materials characterization analysis and interpretation? Join our series of XRD webinars which are focused on helping you achieve better XRD data. This is our second webinar of the XRD series.

During this webinar, Dr Daniel Lee, Malvern Panalytical's application specialist will be discussing how powder XRD research can be applied to many material types. Whether you are analyzing battery powders, geological samples, powder metallurgy for 3D printing, catalyst deterioration, respirable silica or pharmaceutical APIs, you can leverage on XRD. Use XRD to not only identify but also quantify any phase changes in your material. This has implications towards how you would want to prepare or optimise your materials or process. Not to mention, checking for phase changes helps companies to adhere to international standards like FDA, ASTM, ISO, OSHA and more.

Dr Daniel Lee, Malvern Panalytical's senior application specialist for XRD, based in South Korea

Dr Lee has a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering. his expertise is on PVD, thin-film analysis, phorphors, solar cells, lithium ion batteries and thin-film battery research. He has been instrumental in providing application support using X-ray diffraction analysis to various industries including electronics, batteries, pharmaceuticals, building materials and more. These include powder diffraction, Rietveld refinement, small angle X-ray scattering, stress and texture research. Prior to joining Malvern Panalytical in 2013, he worked as a senior researcher with GS Nanotech. He was involved in the process engineering process for thin film lithium ion batteries. He also held prior appointments within the R and D team at Telio Solar Korea for CIGS solar cell development.


Who should attend?
• Researchers involved in materials characterization analysis who want to expand their knowledge in X-ray diffraction
• Relevant industries include (but are not limited to) those researching on battery, powder metallurgy, cement, mining and minerals, environmental monitoring, pharmaceuticals and more
• R and D and manufacturing leaders responsible for appropriate analytics selection
