Training on Characterization of Materials Using X-Ray Diffractometer(XRD)

X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) is a high tech, non-destructive technique for analyzing wide range of materials. XRD analysis is based on scattering of monochromatic X-Rays when impinged upon a crystalline sample. Scattered X-Rays produces diffraction pattern consisting of a series of peaks and troughs that carry information about internal structure of materials under study. XRD testing provides information on structures, phases, preferred crystal orientations (texture), and other structural parameters, such as average grain size, crystallinity, strain, and crystal defects. X-Ray powder diffraction pattern is the fingerprint of periodic atomic arrangements in a given material and thereby enables quick phase identification for a large variety of crystalline samples. XRD finds critical applications in diverse areas of science and technology including geology, environmental science, material science, engineering and biology. This training programme intends to create knowlege on the XRD technique
