The International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) is a nonprofit
scientific 
organization that collects, edits, publishes, and distributes powder
diffraction data for the identification of crystalline materials.

The International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) is committed to
promoting the applications of materials characterization methods in
science and technology by providing educational programs such as the ICDD
Clinics. The ICDD Clinics on X-ray Powder Diffraction and X-ray
Fluorescence Spectrometry are conducted annually in June. The format
combines theoretical and practical applications with ample time for the
students to discuss their applications and problems with the faculty. In
pursuing its dynamic commitment to education, the ICDD offers a limited
number of tuition waivers for the Clinic on X-ray Powder Diffraction. The
four sessions are described as follows: 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICDD Clinic on X-ray Powder Diffraction 

Session I - Fundamentals of X-ray Powder Diffraction

June 2-6, 1997 

Covering instrumentation, specimen preparation, data acquisition, and
qualitative phase analysis.

Session II - Advanced Methods in X-ray Powder Diffraction 

June 9-13, 1997 

Emphasizing computer-based methods of data collection and interpretation,
both for qualitative and quantitative phase analysis.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICDD Clinic on X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry

Session I - Fundamentals of X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry 

June 16-20, 1997 

Covering basics of X-ray spectra, instrumentation design, methods of
qualitative and quantitative analysis, specimen preparation and
applications for both wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometry.

Session II - Advanced Methods in X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry 

June 23-27, 1997 

Emphasizing quantitative methods, use of automated X-ray spectrometers,
review of mathematical matrix correction procedures, and new developments
in XRF.
