Specimen Preparation of XRD (Amphitheatre)
Organizer & Instructors:
T. Fawcett, International Centre for Diffraction Data, USA,
S. Quick, Pennsylvania State University, USA,

Specimen preparation is often the limiting step for obtaining good results in a diffraction experiment. Preparation methods can influence 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" and various techniques that experts use to analyze odd shaped parts, limited samples, as well as, air and moisture sensitive specimens.

In the first half, there will be a general overview of the XRF technique, including a discussion of the basic principles of X-ray interactions with matter. The emphasis in the first half will be on understanding the underlying physical phenomena, how the technique is applied, optimization of the signal, and approaches to quantitative analysis. In the second half of the workshop, examples of real-world applications will be presented to illustrate some of the challenges and opportunities that the analyst may face. This half will describe a variety of specimen formats and demonstrate the flexibility of the XRF technique.

Tuesday Morning Workshops 9:00 am – 12 Noon

Rietveld Refinement using In Situ Powder Diffraction Data I (Amphitheatre)
Organizers & Instructors:
A. Yakovenko, APS – Argonne National Laboratory, USA,
J.A. Kaduk, Polycrystallography, Inc., and Illinois Institute of Technology, USA,
K.M. Wiaderek, S. Lapidus, APS – Argonne National Laboratory, USA,,

Software: GSAS-II
Today, structure determination and structure analysis of new materials is one of the routine tasks which needs to be performed in order to understand the materials properties. The majority of structure determinations are carried out by single crystal methods. Materials that are being used in the industrial and/or commercial settings are, however, generally in polycrystalline form. While new structure solution using powder diffraction data may be complicated, powder diffraction can be easily used for in situ and operando structural studies once structural models are known. This enables a better understanding of the material structure and microstructure, and their evolution at real applicable conditions. In situ powder diffraction methods should become a new popular second step after initial structure determination due to recent advantages in sequential and parametric Rietveld analysis.
The 2017 Rietveld Refinement workshop, in addition to "classical" single pattern data refinement, will be focused on strategies of in situ data processing. We will explore carbon monoxide oxidation process and will see what structural changes happens inside Cu/CuxO catalyst. About one quarter of the time will be spent describing how to use other structural techniques such as pair distribution function analysis (PDF) to extract structural information where the Rietveld method might not yield the desired results.

Handheld XRF – The Silver Bullet or Fool's Gold? (North Mammoth)
Organizer & Instructors:
M. Loubser, GeoMagGeoChem, South Africa,
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 know inaccuracies. Then some specific Geology case studies would be presented by Nigel Brand and lastly Lynn Lee 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.

Challenges in XRF Analysis: Sample Preparation, Spectral Interpretation and Soft X-ray Detection (South Mammoth)
Organizer & Instructors:
J. Kawai, Kyoto University, Japan,
Y. Uehara, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Japan,
S. Ichikawa, Fukuoka University, Japan,

This workshop provides a technical introduction on the following topics:
1. The sample preparation (sample amount, particle size for e.g. rice as received or pulverized based on escape depth of fluorescent X-ray, pressure to make a briquette, glass bead components and thickness, specimen diameter, synthetic standard for calibration curve, validation using reference materials ...)
2. Spectrometer settings (A/D conversion gain, smoothing, background subtraction, dwelling time, iteration time, WDX or EDX, X-ray intensity and counting rate, sum peak, escape peak, diffraction peak, shaping time ...)
3. Measurement conditions (sample thickness, monochromatic X-ray energy, incident X-ray beam angle ...) which will affect the results of quantitative and even qualitative results of XRF. Though synchrotron radiation XRF and EPMA are compared with ordinary laboratory or handheld XRF spectrometers, the workshop is intended to make use of ordinary laboratory XRF spectrometer's high reliability. This workshop is intended not only for XRF beginners but also for those already familiar with XRF measurements.

Quantitative Analysis I (Lamar/Gibbon)
Organizer & Instructors:
W.T. Elam, University of Washington, USA,
B. Vrebos, PANalytical B.V., The Netherlands,
K. Kawakyu, Rigaku Corporation, Japan,

Matrix effects and how to compensate for them: scatter peaks, compensation methods, semi-quantitative analysis using FP, and fusion.

Introduction to mathematics and physics of XRF quantification, including matrix effects, spectrum processing, artifacts, instrument settings, and element sensitivity & detection limits.


Tuesday Afternoon Workshops 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Strain & Phase Mapping of Industrial Materials & Processing by Synchrotron
North Mammoth
Organizer & Instructors:
T. Tsakalakos, Rutgers University, USA,
J. Okasinski, APS - Argonne National Laboratory, USA,
W.E. Mayo, Polymorph Experts, USA,

This workshop will focus on the general principles of strain and phase mapping using synchrotron radiation to interrogate a wide range of advanced engineering materials. X-ray diffraction can be utilized to systematically and comprehensively understand the effects of processing and the resultant evolution of structure on the overall mechanical properties, performance, and thermal stability for materials. Standardized procedures for the testing and analyses of size-dependent mechanical and functional properties at the nanoscale, which are essential for the design, modeling, and life assessment of advanced engineering materials for structural and functional applications, will also be addressed.

Unique experimental techniques, in particular energy dispersive X-ray diffraction (EDXRD), will be reviewed in this workshop for the in situ and ex situ characterization of the structure, residual stresses, and fracture and fatigue response. Systematic and well-executed experiments to investigate monotonic and cyclic deformation and failure across nanometer to macroscopic length scales are discussed in carefully chosen and synthesized model systems. We will discuss techniques to directly measure the residual stress tensor in materials as a function of depth, to correlate the residual stress profiling to deformation and fracture processes of advanced engineering materials and to relate deformation modes to structural parameters.

Rietveld Refinement using In Situ Powder Diffraction Data II (Amphitheatre)

Janice Pitre will discuss basic and advanced fusion techniques, such as selection of flux for different applications, conditions that cause cracking in beads, and oxidation techniques for simple and difficult to flux materials.
