DXC 2007: The World's Leading Forum for X-Ray Materials Analysis

July 1, 2007

Spectroscopy previews the 56th Annual Denver X-Ray Conference, which will be held from July 30 to August 3 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The 56th Annual Denver X-Ray Conference on Applications of X-Ray Analysis (DXC), sponsored by the International Center for Diffraction Data (ICDD), will be held from July 30 to August 3 at the Sheraton Colorado Springs in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Denver X-Ray Conference is the world's leading forum for scientists in the field of X-ray materials analysis. The conference provides sessions on training, education, and applications that will appeal to both newcomers in the field and those with many years of experience. Another exciting part of the conference is the presence of leading manufacturers of X-ray equipment, who will be exhibiting their latest devices and answering technical questions.

Workshops

Workshops begin Monday morning, July 30 and continue through Tuesday afternoon, July 31 on the topics of XRD, XRF, and XRD & XRFcombined. These workshops include X-ray Optics, Diffraction Peak Broadening and Peak Shape Analysis, Fundamentals and Applications of Neutron Scattering for Characterizing Structural Materials and Components, Small Angle Scattering, Rietveld Applications I, Rietveld Applications II, X-ray Crystallography without Crystals, Two-dimensional XRD, XRF Sample Preparation I, XRF Sample Preparation II, Trace Analysis, Quantitative Analysis I, Quantitative Analysis II, Basic XRF, Energy Dispersive XRF, and Analysis of RoHS/WEEE Elements—Consultants, Profs, and Testing Labs Take Notice!
