Edge spectroscopy

  • G. Wortmann
Oral Contributions


The near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure can provide information on the chemical form and local structure as well as on the electronic and even magnetic properties of the investigated systems on a microscopic (atomic) scale. Selected examples of the application of edge spectroscopy are presented with emphasis on the valence determination in rare-earth systems, where similar information can be obtained by Mössbauer spectroscopy.
