European Powder Diffraction 6
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The proceedings of the 6th European Conference on Powder iffraction cover 191 papers in the areas of X-ray and neutron diffraction (36 papers). Chapters on Method Development, Development of Instruments and Techniques, Software, Synchrotron and Neutron Diffraction offer new ideas on subjects as Microstructure of Materials, Determination of Crystallographic Structure, Quantitative Phase Analysis, and Texture & Coarse Grains. Developments in analysis using the X-ray lens –a bundle of glass capillaries- and single or double X-ray mirrors continue.
The some 130 contributions apply current powder diffraction methods to those materials of interest to scientists and engineers: metals and alloys, inorganics and minerals -including thin layers consisting of these materials-, amorphous materials, polymers and organics. A large fraction of these papers analyse phase transformations and reactions in, or with, materials.
Awareness is increasing that it is possible to use one set of well-chosen measurements to obtain quantitative information on various material characteristics that govern material properties. Furthermore, many papers show that the results benefit from additional analysis e.g. by TEM, DSC.
