PowerPoint Files

These short PowerPoint presentations can be used to introduce newcomers to the field of powder diffraction. They have been prepared on a Mac running under Mac OS X (10.3.5) using PowerPoint 2004 for Mac, with the exception of PowderDiffraction.pptx (Mac OSX 10.9, PowerPoint 2011 for Mac). If you have any difficulty downloading or reading the files, please send me an e-mail at the address shown above.
