    NSLS-II Seminar

    "X-ray spectroscopy of transition metal oxides"

    Presented by Frank de Groot, Utrecht University, Netherlands, Netherlands

    11 am, NSLS-II Building 744 Room 156

    Thursday, August 23, 2018, 11:00 am

    Hosted by: Lisa Miller

    Some new developments in x-ray absorption (XAS) and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) will be discussed. An introduction is given of XAS, including the oxygen K edge, metal K edge and metal L edge [1,2]. The main part of the talk deals with resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) In 2p3d RIXS one scans through the 2p XAS edge and measures the low energy excitations, including phonons, magnons, dd-excitations and charge transfer. The 100 meV resolved 2p3d RIXS spectra of ruby (Cr3+ in Al2O3), Fe3O4 and LaCoO3 will be discussed [3,4]. The present experimental resolution of 30 to 100 meV allows the detailed observation of the electronic structure, including the determination of crystal field parameters, covalency parameters and spin-orbit coupling, but also the momentum dependence of magnons and other low energy excitations. Related to the RIXS measurements is the analysis of Fluorescence yield (FY) detected x-ray absorption spectra (XAS), including the intrinsic deviations of FY-XAS spectral shape from the XAS spectrum that is important for measurements with x-ray free electron lasers [5,6]. —————————————————————————— [1] Core Level Spectroscopy of Solids Frank de Groot and Akio Kotani (Taylor & Francis CRC press, 2008) [2] Download the x-ray spectroscopy simulation software at [3] Huang et al.
