About DXC

Attendees to the World's largest X-ray conference will have access to sessions on the latest advancements in XRD and XRF. Workshops are run by experts who provide TRAINING and EDUCATION on many PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS of X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction techniques for the study of materials. Designed to help attendees (with little or many years of experience), our workshops will solve some of their most difficult problems. As an added benefit, these experts will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions.


The ICDD, sponsors of the DXC, is pleased to present access to Volumes 40 – 57 (1996 – 2013) of The Advances in X-ray Analysis- Proceedings of the Denver X-ray Conference in Adobe Acrobat PDF form.  Browse by title or search by keyword, including author name. Results indicate the title, author, and file size.

The Denver X-ray Conference website, dxcicdd.com, contains programs and abstracts for the Denver X-ray Conference from 1997 to 2015. In general there are ~ 200 abstracts submitted on an annual basis and 50-100 of these are published into full papers for AXA

See this page to download and view of all abstracts, or this AXA page to search the published articles.
