X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) is a powerful and versatile technique that fits into the larger landscape of material characterization techniques by providing unique, element-specific insights into the local atomic structure, electronic properties, and bonding interactions of materials. It complements and enhances the information obtained from other characterization methods, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of materials.
In this session, we will discuss the utility of XAS and how newly developed lab-scale instrumentation enables its practical use as an everyday tool for materials characterization. Come see real world applications of laboratory XAS.
