23–26 March 2017 9th Workshop on Structural Analysis of Aperiodic Crystals
University of Bayreuth, Germany
An overview will be provided of the methods of structural analysis of incommensurately modulated crystals and composite crystals. Lectures will cover the basic principles of the superspace approach. A presentation of recent developments includes special modulation functions. Participants will have the opportunity to practice structural analysis in superspace with the computer programs Superflip and JANA2006 (by V. Petricek, M. Dusek and L. Palatinus, Prague). A step-by-step tutorial will guide you through structure determination, symmetry analysis, structure refinement and t-plots for crystal-chemical analysis of selected examples of modulated structures and composite crystals.
