RGCB Crystallography Workshop 2023

December 12-13, 2023

ICDD ® Workshop on Materials Characterization Using Powder X-ray Diffraction

Hosted by Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology in collaboration with Vivertana Distributors Pvt. Ltd.

The structure of the workshop is intended to be very interactive with lectures followed by (or along with) hands-on sessions. Hands-on sessions are designed to learn the concepts by solving problems of different complexity levels (simple to advanced)

This workshop will describe both data mining using the ICDD PDF-5+® database and methods of analysis embodied in ICDD PDF-5+® Sieve+ and ICDD MDI JADEPro® software.

Hands-on access to PDF-5+® and JADEPro® will be available through a remote desktop server via web access. Attendees should bring their laptop computer with wireless web access (Edge, Chrome, Firefox).

The first day of the workshop will present the PDF databases, database overview, features, datamining capabilities and Sieve+ for phase identification.

The second day will be qualitative and quantitative XRD analyses using MDI JADEPro software. In addition, materials characterization using the JADEPro Toolkit features will be demonstrated.

Attendees will have two-week (December 15-30, 2023) post meeting access to PDF-5+® and JADEPro® .
