The Hands-on Powder Diffraction School is fully booked!
We have forty participants who will follow an intensive 2 day course in powder diffraction including hands-on training.
The course will take place on 21 & 22 November 2017 at the Reactor Institute Delft, Mekelweg 15, Delft.
The school is organized by Amarante Böttger (3mE, TUDelft), Huub Kooijman (Shell Technology Center Amsterdam), Rene de Gelder (Radboud University Nijmegen), Céleste Reiss (NVK), Lambert van Eijck (Appl.Sci. TUDelft)
If you are interested in a follow-up of this course, please send an email to us at our “education at” email address.
The registration for the yearly meeting and the annual member meeting (ALV) is now open!
The NVK symposium of 2017 will take place on Friday 3 November 2017, at the Pivot Park in Oss. Following the symposium, the annual member meeting (ALV) of the NVK will be held, at the same location.
We have a diverse program with speakers from different disciplines:
- Nicholas Pearce, Universiteit Utrecht
- Junyu Li, DSM R&D Solutions
- Stef Smeets, Stockholm University, Sweden
- Bernd Souvignier, Radboud University Nijmegen
- Ad van Well, TU Delft
After lunch you will be able to visit the Pivot Park Screening Centre or the Museum Jan Cunen. More details about the program and the venue as well as the registration for the meeting can be found on this page.
We look forward to see you in Oss on November 3!
It is with deep regret that we have heard that Ted Janssen passed away on September 29, 2017 at the age of 81.
Ted Janssen was professor of Theoretical Physics at Radboud University Nijmegen. He was a pioneer in the symmetry description of aperiodic crystals. In 1988 he received the Aminoff prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Science and in 2014 the Ewald prize of the International Union of Crystallography.

Dit weekeinde bereikte ons het bericht dat op 16 juli jl. Dr. Hugo M. Rietveld na een kort ziekbed is overleden.
Een beschrijving van zijn werk en van de enorme invloed van de Rietveld methode op de kristallografie in het algemeen en de poederdiffractie in het bijzonder vindt u hier.
We look back on a great NVK Structural Biology Symposium: “New Horizons in Structural Biology”.
