The following topics will be covered:

    * Data collection strategies for X-ray and neutron diffraction
    * Constant wavelength and time of flight diffraction
    * Modelling peak shapes
    * Indexing powder patterns
    * Rietveld, Le Bail and Pawley fitting methods
    * X-ray and neutron combined Rietveld refinement
    * Extended solids and molecular systems
    * Restrained refinements
    * Rigid body refinements

The fee for the course will be £150 for students, £200 for University delegates and £400 for industrial delegates. The application deadline is on the 13th January 2012 with all payments due by 26th February 2012.
