Each day the workshop starts at 9am and finishes at 6pm (Click here for detailed schedule)
This is a specialized workshop explaining the method of electron diffraction tomography, structure solution based on electron diffraction data and refinement of the structures with Jana2006. Program highlights:
  • Theoretical introduction to experimental and data-processing methods for electron crystallography
  • Basic introduction to Jana2006 - standard x-ray structure
  • Demonstration of data collection
  • Data processing of diffraction tomography data - preparation of input for Jana2006
  • Kinematical structure refinement from electron diffraction data
  • Structure refinement using dynamical diffraction theory

Lecturers for this workshop: Lukas Palatinus, Vaclav Petricek, Mariana Klementova.

For this workshop a preliminary experience with Jana2006 is not needed.
Each participant should bring a laptop with operating system Windows2000/XP/Vista/7/8, with Administration rights. Installation of all necessary software will be done at the beginning of the workshop. Wireless internet connection including Eduroam is available at the lecture room. Limited number of computers can be provided to people without laptop (please inform us before the workshop that this would be needed)
Workshop cookbook
Workshop cookbook cumulates examples from all Jana workshops. The latest version together with example files and installations files is available in jana page: (~ 50MB). THE LINK IS UPDATED AFTER THE WORKSHOP, NOT BEFORE!
