Conferences have always been a great place to connect with our current and future users. Over the past few months, we have been very excited to get back on the road!
The 17th European Powder Diffraction Conference was held in Šibenik, Croatia in May and attended by several hundred scientists from around the world. Bruker hosted an intensive TOPAS workshop with hands-on training for Rietveld and PDF refinements, and sponsored a plenary session featuring Dr. Katharine Page (Oak Ridge National Laboratory/University of Tennessee - Knoxville). Bruker is proud to be a part of this global scientific community.
Next stop was Analytica 2022 in Munich this past June, where we caught up with fellow scientists and shared a few refreshments. Technologies from across Bruker were represented, including XRD and XRF. In addition to showing the instruments, we were also excited to show our new booth design!
The first week of August was exceptionally busy, with 3 shows in the US stretching from coast to coast!
The 72nd ACA Annual Meeting was held in Portland. With euphoria and optimism in the air, we were finally able to meet friends and fellow crystallographers in person. Is there a better way to pull a crowd to the booth than celebrating Sue Byram’s birthday with a glass of champagne? Happy Birthday Sue.
Portland also hosted the Microscopy and Microanalysis (M&M) 2022 conference. In addition to the release of the new XFlash detector for a myriad of instruments in our nanoanalytical solutions, X-Ray Microscopy (XRM) was also present to show how Bruker has taken microscopy beyond the surface of objects, allowing non-destructive imaging of the interior.
Denver X-ray Conference 2022 was hosted in Bethesda, Maryland after two years of digital format. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old colleagues and meet a few new ones. Dr. Bob He (Business Development Manager) kicked off the week as an instructor at the 2D XRD Workshop and Dr. Michael Evans wrapped up the technical sessions with a joint XRD/PDF study on functional oxides.
We are looking forward to the remaining events scheduled this year! Hope to see you there!
