Online Training Course on X-Ray Diffraction by MANIT, Bhopal [Sept 6-15]: Register by Aug 30: Expired


The Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering in collaboration with the Department of Physics, MANIT, Bhopal is organizing an Online Short-Term Training Course on X-ray Diffraction: Theory, Methods, and Workflow from September 6 to 15, 2021.

The scope of this course is firstly to acquaint participants with a fundamental understanding of the theoretical basis as well as the practical applications of powder diffractometry followed by a demonstration of XRD analysis techniques. Secondly, to provide hands-on training to determine the crystal and molecular structure from the measured X-ray diffraction data.

Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology Bhopal (An Institution of National Importance), offers various undergraduate and postgraduate courses and research programs. Under the peaceful and friendly environment, MANIT is producing technocrats who are resources to the Nation and the world. Our bright students with excellent technical skills have always contributed to the successes of various sections of the technical group.
