Powder diffraction experiments are also carrried out at central facilities such as the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility shown below. If you want to learn more about how to do powder diffraction experiments at synchrotron or neutron sources, then you may want to consider joining this course.
View showing the ESRF synchrotron ring. The grey dome of the nuclear reactor at the Institut Laue Langevin, which provides Europe with a steady-state source of neutrons, is clearly visible on the right. These facilities are set in the rather pleasant surroundings of Grenoble, France.
