Hot Topics In Contemporary Crystallography

22-04-2017 - 26-04-2017

HTCC 2017 is a meeting point where PhD students, young scientists and university lecturers discuss the achievements in non-ambient measurements, dynamic crystallography down to femto-scale, material characterization down to nano-scale, and charge density studies down to the last detail.

DECTRIS’ answer to these mostly high-energy applications is the PILATUS3 CdTe series. Dubravka Šišak Jung will present how the detector's features improve spatial and temporal resolution in charge density, time-resolved and in situ studies.


16-04-2017 - 21-04-2017

Returning to SLAC for a third time, RapiData 2017 is a practical course in macromolecular X-ray diffraction data collection, data processing and structure solution. The aim of the course is to educate and train young scientists in data collection and processing methods at synchrotron beamlines, using state-of-the-art software and instrumentation.

DECTRIS sponsors this important event. Do not miss the talk by our application scientist Andreas Förster and meet him during the event.

14th Annual SER-CAT Symposium


The Southeast Regional Collaborative Access Team (SER-CAT) was formed in 1997 to provide macromolecular crystallographers and structural biologists in the southeastern region of the U.S. with access to a third generation X-ray source. The organization has been successful in determining structures by experimental phasing (SAD/MAD). Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, SER-CAT is contemplating a detector upgrade to EIGER, which has become the new reference for advanced protein crystallographic methods.

Presentations by Albert Fu (SER-CAT) and DECTRIS CSO Clemens Schulze-Briese will discuss recent EIGER results and highlights. Clemens will be around during the entire meeting to discuss your latest results and detector requirements.

25th DGK Conference

27-03-2017 - 30-03-2017

Ruben Vogelsang and Marcus Müller will represent DECTRIS at our booth in the exhibition area. Come discuss your application and the latest detector developments with our experts.

Advanced Methods in Rietveld Refinement Workshop

27-03-2017 - 29-03-2017

Louis-Dimitri Bleyo

DECTRIS continues to support the outreach of the International Year of Crystallography, and offers a full sponsorship to one student. The recipient is Mr. Louis-Dimitri Bleyo, a PhD student at Université Félix Houphouet Boigny, Ivory Coast, where he investigates structure-property relationships of medically relevant molecules. We wish him lots of success at the Workshop and many structures solved from X-ray powder diffraction data.

West Coast Protein Crystallography Workshop

19-03-2017 - 22-03-2017

The workshop provides an outstanding opportunity to learn about latest advances and trends, exchange practical advice, and interact with peers and scientific leaders.

DECTRIS proudly sponsors this event. Sacha De Carlo, Business Development Electron Microscopy, will attend the workshop. Take the chance to chat with him about the latest developments.

MAX IV User Meeting

13-03-2017 - 15-03-2017

The 29th MAX IV laboratory user meeting brings scientists from all over the world together to learn about new applications, structures and techniques. The meeting will take place in the centre of Lund with general sessions at Stadshallen on Monday 13 Mar and Wednesday 15 Mar. Parallel scientific sessions will take place at the Grand Hotel on Tuesday 14 Mar. Come see Stefan Brandstetter, Product Manager Synchrotron, at our booth to discuss your application and results.

When the user meeting is over, the fourth HDRMX meeting will take place at MAX IV from Wed 15 Mar to Fri.  Andreas Förster, Application Scientists MX, and Stefan Brandstetter will demonstrate data processing of EIGER at speeds you've only dreamed about.

Rietveld Course

06-03-2017 - 09-03-2017

This intensive course will teach the basics of the Rietveld method in theory and practice. Tutorials will show the complete process from profil adaption using fundamental parameters to the detection of the atom positions and the follwing refinement.

Dubravka Šišak Jung, Application Scientist XRPD, will present "Success in structure solution as a result of specific data collection strategy". Come chat with her about the latest detector developments after the talk.

Conference on Industrial Computed Tomography

07-02-2017 - 09-02-2017

Some of the exciting topics of the conference include

  • Initial sampling inspection and reverse engineering
  • CT for non-destructive testing
  • Application of CT in automotive-, aerospace- and material industry
  • CT as a tool for the development of new materials and components
  • CT for 3D material characterisation
  • Evaluation and visualisation of CT data
  • Standardisation of CT
  • New algorithms and software tools for the evaluation and visualisation of CT data
  • Correction and filter methods for the improvement of CT results
  • New developments in CT instrument technology incl. X-ray detectors and sources

Do not miss the poster presentation by Spyridon Gkoumas, Business Development Medical, titled "X-ray Imaging with CdTe Hybrid Photon Counting Detectors and Nanofocus X-ray Tube". Afterwards, show up at our booth to get your copy of the poster.

ESRF User Meeting 2017

06-02-2017 - 08-02-2017


The ESRF User Meeting is an ideal forum for exchange among users and with the ESRF staff, whether to discuss the planned upgrade project or to stimulate new proposals and ideas. The ESRF user community is warmly invited to participate through the submission of abstracts and posters and by meeting together onsite for discussion, interaction and networking.

Take the opportunity to meet Clemens Schulze-Briese and Andy Mösch to chat about your applications.
