Single Crystal Online Users’ Meeting

Single Crystal Online Users’ Meeting

We would like to invite you to join us for our annual user meetings on 12th and 13th August. Due to travel restrictions currently affecting many countries, we will hold this event via Zoom and it will therefore be available globally. The event will be held between 3 PM and 6 PM CEST (8 AM-11 AM CDT) and cover a range of topics including the latest developments at Rigaku Oxford Diffraction and talks from our experienced applications team. As always our user meetings are open to all users of our single crystal products.

We would also like to maintain the customer speaker element of our user meetings and as such we would like to invite proposals from our user community if you would be interested in contributing a presentation.
