Determination of Interatomic Distances from X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure
A pragmatic, easily applied theory of the extended X-ray absorption fine structure found on the high-energy side of absorption edges is developed. This simple model can be successfully applied to determinations of interatomic distances, and it accounts for differences in Kronig structure on different absorption edges in the same material. Quantitative agreement with experimental data is good.
