Workshop: Quantitative Analysis of X-ray Powder Diffraction Data using HighScore Plus

Georgia Institute of Technology

The course will provide training on quantitative analysis of X-ray powder diffraction data using several whole pattern fitting techniques available in HighScore Plus XRD software, such as profile fitting and the Rietveld method. These techniques are used to quantify phase content (i.e. quantitative phase analysis, determining how much of each phase is present in a mixture), to quanitfy amorphous content, to calculate nanocrystallite size and microstrain, to index unit cells and refine lattice parameters, and to refine crystal structures including atom positions and occupancies. This course will also include discussion about procedures for collecting data that will provide accurate quantitative results.
