A simple introduction to the technique and applications of x-ray absorption spectroscopy
X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy is being applied to a widening set of disciplines. Applications began with solid-state physics and grew to materials science, biochemistry, chemistry, and geology. Now, they cut across engineering materials, environmental science, and national heritage — giving very detailed and helpful information facilitating the understanding and development of materials. This practical guide assists investigators choose the right experiment, conduct it out properly, and evaluate the data to give the best reliable result. It gives readers insights to extract what they require from the world of large-scale experimental facilities like synchrotrons, which appear distant to many laboratory scientists.
X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy for the Chemical and Materials Sciences (ePub/PDF) seeks to educate readers about the strengths and restrictions of the techniques, including their accessibility. Offered in six sections, it offers chapters that cover: an introduction to X-ray absorption fine structure XAFS; the basis of XAFS; X-ray sources; experimental methods; data analysis and simulation methods; and case studies.
- Features Questions to support learning through the ebook
- Four-color representation allows easy interpretation of images and data for the reader
- A no-nonsense introduction to the technique and applications of x-ray absorption spectroscopy
- Relevant to all working on synchrotron sources and applications in physics, materials, environment/geology, and biomedical materials
X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy for the Chemical and Materials Sciences is aimed at Masters-level and Ph.D. students embarking on X-ray spectroscopy projects along with scientists in areas of materials characterization.
