X-ray Fluorescence

Handheld XRF – The Silver Bullet or Fools Gold?
Organizer & Instructors:
M. Loubser, GeoMagGeoChem, South Africa,
A. Seyfarth, SGS Minerals, Canada,
N. Brand, Geochemical Services Pty Ltd, Australia,
L. Lee, Getty Conservation Institute, USA,

X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a mature technique with the theory well described and routinely applied in process control, exploration, mining and manufacturing apart from research and development applications.  The “big shrink” as in most analytical technologies was the result of improved electronics and computer chips, and together with the advance of the SDD detector, Energy Dispersive XRF was ready to enter the playground.  Handheld XRF moved from a metal sorting scanner to an actual quantitative analytical tool.  But here lies the biggest challenge, because of reduced cost and ease of operation this tool is now more accessible to people who often do not have the insight in the limitations.

In this workshop, firstly the differences between analysis in the field vs. the laboratory would be explained, and methods to improve accuracy or interpret the data based on the known inaccuracies.  Practical issues like safety of operation will be discussed. A set of geological “exploration” based studies show how to get fit for purpose data in various scenarios will be given by Nigel Brand.  Taking the applications, a step further is the approach of quantitative analysis of plant material to manure.  Then conservation scientists from the Getty will introduce some case studies in the field of art and conservation where the ability to bring a non-destructive technique to the actual object probably had the biggest impact, but again, not without pitfalls.

Monday pm Workshops

X-ray Diffraction

High-Energy X-ray Diffraction Microscopy
Organizer & Instructors:
J. Almer, Argonne National Laboratory, USA,
J.S. Park, Argonne National Laboratory, USA,
H. Sharma, Argonne National Laboratory, USA,

High-energy X-ray diffraction microscopy (HEDM) is a 3D imaging technique which yields crystallographic information of individual grains within polycrystalline aggregates.   This information includes the orientation and center of mass of each diffracting grain, and can be obtained non-destructively under a variety of in-situ conditions such as applied stress and temperature.  Additional information includes grain shape and lattice spacing/strains, with the sensitivity to these quantities depending on the (variable) sample to detector distance.  HEDM has been developed and primarily used at synchrotron X-ray sources, although some laboratory versions are now available. In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the HEDM technique and its implementation at the Advanced Photon Source.  We will discuss current limitations of the technique, and share both pitfalls and tips learned from experiences with users over the past ~decade.   We will then work with the participants to process example raw datasets to produce 3D microstructural images, and perform basic visualization and data exploration of the images.

Basic to Intermediate XRD
Organizers & Instructors:
M. Rodriguez, Sandia National Laboratory, USA,
S. Misture, New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, USA,
T. Blanton, ICDD International Centre for Diffraction Data, USA,

This workshop will discuss the use of XRD for standard qualitative analysis and will detail progressively more challenging means of XRD characterization including: quantitative analysis, profile fitting, lattice parameter refinement, crystallite size and microstrain determination, texture analysis, and structure refinement (Rietveld). Additionally, some discussion shall be dedicated to characterization of nanomaterials and glasses via pair distribution function analysis, as well as thin film techniques such as grazing incidence XRD and X-ray reflectivity (XRR). The workshop is intended to be a survey for the new user of XRD regarding what experiments can be performed and why one would wish to pursue such measurements.

X-ray Fluorescence

Basic XRF
Organizer & Instructors:
J.A. Anzelmo, Anzelmo & Associates, Inc., USA,
M.A. Zaitz, IBM, USA,

This workshop provides a basic introduction to the principles of XRF and is specifically aimed at those new to the field.  It begins with a general overview of the technique and the various instrumentation configurations including their main applications.  This is followed by more specific details of XRF Physics.  Basic WDX instrumentation will be described with its use and applications.  In the second half of the workshop, basic EDX instrumentation including general purpose bulk analyzers (benchtop EDX), TXRF, Micro analyzers, and Handheld analyzers will be reviewed.  Capabilities, and applications in actual practice will be described.

X-ray Diffraction

SAXS Data Reduction and Analysis of Specific Types of Samples – Part I
Organizers & Instructors:
J. Ilavsky, APS-Argonne National Laboratory, USA,
F. Zhang, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA,

Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is a premier technique that captures the statistically significant structural characteristics in the mesoscopic (nanometer to micrometer) regime. Recent developments in both synchrotron-based and lab-based SAXS instruments, as well as the increasing availability of user-friendly small angle scattering (SAS) data reduction and analysis software, have enabled high-quality measurements of a wide range of materials and facilitated the construction of structure-function-property relationship, critical to materials development. In particular, in situ or operando measurements of advanced functional materials in various sample environments, made possible by the high flux and high energy X-rays generated by the synchrotron sources, have played a pivotal role in unveiling the complex materials microstructural pathways under their working conditions.

The SAXS workshop and scientific session, combined, aim to showcase the most recent advancements in both SAS analysis software and the applications of SAXS. The SAXS workshop will provide an in-depth introduction to the capabilities of two leading SAS analysis software suites under active development, Irena and SasView. The scientific session invites contributions from all aspects of SAXS applications in materials science, with emphasis on advanced functional materials of real-life significance.

Rietveld – Part I
Organizer & Instructors:
O. Borkiewicz, B. Toby, R. Von Dreele, K. Wiaderek, A. Yakovenko, Argonne National Laboratory, USA,

This workshop has been designed as a foray to structural analysis of powder X-ray scattering data – one of the most comprehensive and powerful tools for evaluating crystal structures. The primary goal of this workshop will be to discuss and explain all typical steps involved in structural analysis of X-ray scattering data with emphasis on data collected at modern users’ facilities using large-area detectors. First part of the workshop will focus on such aspects of the data analysis process as measurement calibration, data reduction, peak profile fitting, Rietveld refinement. In addition to “classic” single pattern refinement approach, we will explore strategies for handling large data sets, i.e. sequential refinements and parametric fitting to in situ and operando data. The second part of the workshop will be dedicated to the complementary use of pair distribution function (PDF) analysis, which allow extraction of structural information from amorphous and disordered materials, for which classical crystallographic approaches may not yield satisfactory results. All tasks pertaining to the workshop will be carry out and accomplished within General Structure Analysis System (GSAS-II). GSAS-II is a powerful open-source Python-based tool that addresses all types of crystallographic studies and handles all standard activities involved in the reduction and analysis of data acquired with both X-ray and neutron probes. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn how to take full advantage of this powerful software directly from the program authors, Robert Von Dreele and Brian Toby, and how to apply this knowledge to real-world applications and experimental data sets presented by beamline scientists Kamila Wiaderek, Andrey Yakovenko and Olaf Borkiewicz, Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory.
