R-XAS by RIGAKU, Japan
EXAFS provides precise local structural information like bond distances, coordination number and type of neighboring atoms, and disorder in crystalline or non-crystalline systems.
XANES provides the oxidation state of the absorbing ion, thus providing information related to charging transfer, orbital occupancy, and symmetry around the absorbing ion.
- Room temperature measurements only
- Samples in powder form are preferred, though measurement on thin films is possible.
- Measurement is possible for all 1st-row transition metal cations (Ti to Cu) and 1st-row Lanthanides (Ce to Lu).
