Due to the uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to announce that the 2020 XRF Short Course at Hamilton College is canceled. We are completely refunding fees for those who registered for the course.
We are planning to offer our Annual XRF Short Course and the Advanced Short Course at Hamilton College in later June 2021. This website will be updated when details become available. Please stay tuned!
It is a tightly integrated two-week course on the fundamentals, instrumentation, qualitative analysis, sample preparation, quantitative analysis and data reduction methods and software of X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRFS). It is designed to enable participants to have a good understanding of the XRFS technique and its applications, as well as to develop the skills for successfully carrying out routine analysis. Emphasis is given on practical applications.
The participants, after completion of the course, will have a good knowledge of the components of a modern X-ray spectrometer, how to set up a spectrometer, and the knowledge of different methods of data reduction for the determination of elements at the major, minor and trace levels.
This course has been recommended by the major X-ray fluorescence spectrometer manufacturers to their users as a basic training requirement for successfully carrying out routine analysis.
All participants and lecturers will stay at a university residence. This will provide additional opportunities for discussion between participants and lecturers during the course.
