The primary goal of this workshop is to teach participants the Rietveld refinement method for evaluating crystal structures from 1D diffraction data. This workshop will consist of a lecture describing the Rietveld refinement process and a hands-on exercise.
Time: Dec. 14th, 9:00 am – 12:00 am
Location: MRC 324
Requirements: Download GSAS-II, you will need to download Python.
There is no fee to attend, but registration for the workshop is required. Max 15.
Please join us to congratulate Junjie Zhao et al. from Greg Parsons’ group in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Chuangming Cheng et al. from Yong Zhu’ group in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering to receive AIF 2015 best paper award. Their research work involves employing many analytical instruments housed at AIF.
The AIF Best Paper Awards are given annually to reward and encourage exceptional research results that utilize the state-of-the-art facilities and staff at AIF. Recipients are selected by a committee of faculty and staff. The award is presented at the annual MRS/ASM/AVS Joint Symposium at NCSU and student authors receive a cash award.

AIF made TV!
Thanks to experiments by Christopher Fancher and Jason Nikkel, who are in Jacob Jones’ research group, AIF is highlighted on an episode 106 (Cosmic Bling) of “3 scientists walk into a bar”!
We are featured at time 40:20 and again in the credits on 42:21.
