Research Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (PPNN), Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) is one of the most recent Research Centers established by ITB in order to response modern and complex challenges as well as to reaffirm a strong commitment always involves in research, development and application of frontier science and technology for the betterment of Indonesia, with 4 research laboratories in PPNN (nano material, nano medicine, nano biotechnology, and nano


Participants will learn the basics of crystallography, diffraction, instrumental configuration, sample preparation, data acquisition and refinement strategy in 5 days workshop. Participants will gain the benefit of Powder XRD in Material Science, Mineral, Cement, Drugs, etc. Participants will also hands-on with the DIFFRAC.SUITE™ software package, which can be used for phase identification, quantitative phase analysis, profile analysis, micro structure analysis, etc. Get to meet with other TOPAS Users and have your questions answered by our Bruker X-Ray Applications team and get in touch with BRUKER D8 Advance with LynxEye XE detector. Participants will be given the opportunity to characterize their samples using XRD D8 Advance, (maximum one sample per person – according to the standard measurement)


Driven by innovation – its outstanding and unique fundamental parameters approach, function minimization routines and structure determination capabilities are just a few examples of how TOPAS is at the leading edge in powder diffraction.
