The ETC is currently proud to announce we will be holding a 4 day Advanced XRD, powder diffraction and single crystal, training course. This will be for a limited time only, taking place in September from the 17th to the 20th.

The course will include:

  • Powder and single crystal diffractometry
  • Experimental set up
  • TOPAS software
  • GSAS 2 software
  • MAUD software
  • in situ single crystal analysis
  • Single crystal ab initio structure determination

Full details of the course speakers and timetable can be found here.

The standard course cost is £850, however, discounts are available for PhD students and non-residentials. Please enquire for exact prices.

Practical Scanning Electron Microscopy Course

The centre’s Scanning Electron Microscopy courses give delegates theoretical and practical knowledge of scanning electron microscopy (SEM); through a series of lectures, demonstrations and practicals explore the theory, practice and application of these powerful analytical tools.

The focus of the courses include: interaction between electrons and materials, imaging techniques, high resolution SEM, energy dispersive X-ray analysis and electron back-scattering diffraction.

Courses make use of both standard scanning electron microscopes and the ETCbrunel’s state-of-the-art variable-pressure, field-effect SEM.

These courses run over two days and are followed up by a two-hour one to one session, so you can bring your samples along!

Because of its emphasis on practical skills, the number of delegates will be limited to 10 per course so early booking is recommended.
