X-Ray Absorption and X-Ray Emission Spectroscopy: Theory and Applications; 2 volume set

Edited by Jeroen A. van Bokhoven and Carlo Lamberti



845 pages




Volume one of the two-volume set explains the experimental and theoretical aspects of x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES), beginning with the physics of photon emission by accelerated charged particles in bending magnets, wigglers, undulators, and free electron lasers. Three of the 12 chapters describe the domain of time-resolved XAS experiments at progressively more demanding time scales. The second volume focuses on the enormous potential of both spectroscopic techniques for catalytic, semiconductor, and industrial applications. The 15 chapters discuss mixed valence oxides, fuel cells and batteries, nuclear fuel, earth science, cultural heritage, free electron lasers, magnetic circular dichroism, liquid systems, and surface metal complexes. Color plates are grouped into the center of each volume. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
