Specimen preparation is often the limiting step for obtaining good results in a diffraction experiment. Preparation methods can infl uence the accuracy and precision of peak positions, intensities and profile. These are the basic measurements required for qualitative and quantitative analysis. The presentation will focus on crystallite and particle effects, orientation and texture, particle statistics and how various preparation methods can reduce or eliminate these influences. We will also focus on “tricks of the trade” for the preparation of micro specimens, air and moisture sensitive specimens, and thin films. The presentation will cover a range of preparation techniques used with common instruments.

The workshop will explore the various methods for alignment, setup, qualifi cation and use of laboratory diffraction equipment suitable for powder diffraction and thin film diffraction and refl ectometry. A range of optical confi gurations will be discussed: conventional divergent beam, Johansson, graded parabolic mirrors, channel-cut symmetric and asymmetric monochromators and channel-cut analyzers. The methods for use of NIST SRMs to qualify and calibrate diffraction instruments will be covered using advanced methods of data analysis. These will include: for powder diffraction—the Rietveld method and the fundamental parameters approach; for high resolution and refl ectometry—differential evolution and Monte-Carlo methods. Certification methods for SI-traceable NIST SRMs will also be discussed.

MONDAY am XRF

Basic XRF / Gold Camp

Organizer & Instructors:
T. Elam, University of Washington APL, Seattle, WA, wtelam@apl.washington.edu
G.J. Havrilla, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM

This workshop provides a basic introduction to the principles of XRF, and is specifically aimed at those new to the field. It will start with a general overview of the technique, followed by more specific details of the basic principles. The emphasis will be on understanding how to use XRF and what its capabilities are. In the second half of the workshop, a few selected applications will be presented. The focus of this segment will be to provide an understanding of how the basic principles affect actual practice.

X-ray Optics / Centennial

Organizer & Instructor: G.J. Havrilla, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, havrilla@lanl.gov

There are many X-ray optics available to spatially restrict X-rays for use in X-ray spectrometry. Each optic has its own characteristics, capabilities, advantages and disadvantages and unique application niches. This workshop will provide basic knowledge about X-ray optics, specifically multi layer optics, polycapillary optics, doubly curved crystal optics, and monocapillary optics. One of the objectives in this workshop is to help users understand the basic working principles and performance characteristics of these optics. Attendees will learn the function of an X-ray optical system in selected applications and their capabilities.

MONDAY pm XRD

Rietveld Analysis / Pikes Peak 1 & 2

Organizers & Instructors:
S.T. Misture, New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, misture@alfred.edu
J.A. Kaduk, Poly Crystallography Inc. and Illinois Institute of Technology, Naperville, IL, kaduk@polycrystallography.com

This workshop will cover the theory (briefl y) and applications of Rietveld analysis. A broad range of applications will be covered, including: crystal structure and unit cell refinement, quantitative analysis, size and microstrain determination, texture analysis, and handling partially amorphous specimens. The instructors will provide not only traditional lectures but also will show live demonstrations of refinements, and will be happy to field questions during the demonstrations.

Materials Characterization by Combining X-ray Analytical with 3D X-ray Imaging Techniques / Gold Camp

Organizer & Instructors:
I. Cernatescu, Pratt and Whitney, iuliana.cernatescu@pw.utc.com
S.R. Stock, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL
G. Blaj, CERN, Genève, Switzerland
J. Gelb, Xradia, Pleasanton, CA

While X-Ray diffraction (XRD) is sensitive to variation of structure, phases, orientation, and microstructure of crystallite materials, Computed Tomography (CT) is sensitive to electron density variation, independent of whether the material is crystalline or not. Each technique is a very powerful characterization tool on its own, however a more complete story can be given when the results from both techniques are combined. The aim of this workshop is to give the attendees an overview of X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and X-Ray Computed Tomography (CT) and introduce the combination of both techniques for materials characterization. Both synchrotron- and laboratory-based techniques, instrumentation, and examples will be described.

MONDAY pm XRF

Trace Analysis / Pikes Peak 3 & 4

Organizers & Instructors:
C. Streli, TU Wien, Atominstitut, Wien, Austria, streli@ati.ac.at
P. Wobrauschek, TU Wien, Atominstitut, Wien, Austria, wobi@ati.ac.at
R. Van Grieken, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
E. Margui, University of Girona, Girona, Spain
G. Pepponi, Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy
A. Martin, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Sugar Land, TX

This year´s trace analysis workshop will provide an introduction of basic fundamentals interesting for both beginners and experienced X-ray spectroscopists. Main topics to be covered are presentations of most modern techniques and instrumentation for trace element analysis. Physical methods to improve minimum detection limits in XRF by background reduction; for example, as use of sources of polarized radiation (Bragg- Barkla polarizers and synchrotron radiation), selective excitation, monochromatization will be presented. Taking secondary targets in orthogonal geometry or simple filtering of the primary radiation as a means of improving detection limits is discussed. Introduction to total refl ection XRF (TXRF) and actual instrumentation including portable TXRF is another point of interest and will show achievable advantages and results in terms of detection limits, sensitivities and detectable elemental range. Applications from interesting scientific fields as environment, microelectronics, forensic, and life science will show the successful use of the importance of the various XRF spectrometric techniques.

TUESDAY am XRD & XRF

NEW! Technical Communication / Pikes Peak 1 & 2

Organizer & Instructor:
L. Rosenstein, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, lr3@ce.gatech.edu

Writing: Creating Paragraph Coherence
One of the most common criticisms levied against people’s writing is that “it just doesn’t flow.” Consequently, the first half of the workshop will address the issue of paragraph coherence.    We will discuss the theory of information flow, and I will present specific strategies to create logical flow within paragraphs. Finally, participants will have a chance to collectively evaluate and edit several example paragraphs.

Speaking: Talking an Audience through Graphical Evidence
One of the most common deficiencies in technical presentations is the speaker’s inability to effectively describe and explain visuals.  Consequently, I will address the specific skill of talking an audience through graphical evidence.  After my presentation, participants will have the opportunity to practice the skills presented and are therefore encouraged (not required) to bring their own examples of graphical evidence (graphs, tables, schematics, photographs) on a flash drive.

Nanostructure by Atomic PDF Analysis I / Pikes Peak 3 & 4

Organizer & Instructor:
V. Petkov, Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, MI, petkov@phy.cmich.edu
