TOPIQ | Measurement and analysis of single crystal diffuse scattering.

In this 75-minute workshop we will introduce the concept of diffuse scattering, show how to measure it, and how to analyze it using a fast method based on the three dimensional difference pair distribution function. We will start from the basics and do not expect from participants any prior knowledge on diffuse scattering or disorder modeling.
