Dr James Hester
|Start Date||29th Aug 2019|
|End Date||3rd Sep 2019|
As part of the LAAAMP Colloquium Programme, Dr James Hester (OPAL neutron source, ANSTO, Australia) will deliver a presentation on "Planning diffraction experiments at large-scale facilities" at the International Crystallography School "Crystallographic Information Fiesta", Naples (Italy), 29 August - 3 September 2019.
James Hester has been working as an instrument scientist at both synchrotron and neutron sources for the last 20 years, and is currently based at the OPAL neutron source within ANSTO, Australia. He is a co-editor of the forthcoming revised edition of Volume G of International Tables, and is the current chair of COMCIFS.
Planning diffraction experiments at large-scale facilities
This talk outlines the types of diffraction techniques typically available at synchrotron and neutron facilities. Guidance is provided on choosing the right technique for the experimental problem, developing an experimental plan, and optimal data collection strategies to maximise the benefit from the instrument time.
