Technical Notes


We have prepared many pages of Technical Notes to assist our customers with various aspects of powder diffraction  technique applied to the solution of their specific problems. These Notes are introductory materials for various powder diffraction techniques. Every Note is intend to address common aspects of method-specific problems, such as phase  identification, phase quantification,  minor and parasitic phases, frequent problems associated with samples, their preparation for analysis etc. By our opinion, these Notes will be a great help for newcomers, students or experts as their first introduction  to new class of problems and materials. Most importantly, our listing  of References at end of each Note will help you with your in depth knowledge with new and specific problems.

We are working to make these Notes up to date, changing contents, improving readability and references. Your suggestion and comments are welcome. These Notes are can be freely used for self-learning purposes, educational process with students, so please feel free to print them or photocopy, copy paste into your lecture notes. All other uses of these Notes should be pre-agreed with XRD.US for Copyright limitations.

If you decided to write a application note on specific topic, let us know, we will review it and your authorship will be acknowledged

Currently we pleased to offer the following Technical Notes:
