Diagram, valence-to-core, and hypersatellite Kβ X-ray transitions in metallic chromium

Zeeshan, Faisal ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Sokaras, Dimosthenis ; Weng, Tsu-Chien ; Alonso-Mori, Roberto ; Kavčič, Matjaz ; Guerra, Mauro ; Sampaio, Jorge Miguel ; Parente, Fernando ; Indelicato, Paul ; Marques, José Pires ; Santos, José Paulo

In: X-Ray Spectrometry, 2019, vol. 48, no. 5, p. 351–359

We report on measurements of the Kβ diagram, valence‐to‐core (VtC), and hypersatellite X‐ray spectra induced in metallic Cr by photon single and double K‐shell ionization. The experiment was carried out at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource using the seven‐crystal Johann‐type hard X‐ray spectrometer of the beamline 6‐2. For the Kβ diagram and VtC transitions, the...

In-house setup for laboratory-based x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy measurements

Zeeshan, Faisal ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Loperetti-Tornay, L. ; Dousse, Jean-Claude

In: Review of Scientific Instruments, 2019, vol. 90, no. 7, p. 073105

We report on a laboratory-based facility for in-house x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) measurements. The device consists of a conventional x-ray source for the production of the incident polychromatic radiation and a von Hamos bent crystal spectrometer for the analysis of the incoming and transmitted radiation. The reliability of the laboratory-based setup was evaluated by comparing the...

Laboratory based XAS measurements, electron-induced double K-shell ionization of Sc, Cr and Cu : and, Chemical sensitivity of photoinduced Kʰβ hypersatelite transition in Cr compounds

Zeeshan, Faisal ; Dousse, Jean-Claude (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2017 ; no. 2052.

The present PhD thesis includes three different projects which belong to the domain of inner-shell atomic physics and high energy resolution X-ray spectroscopy. The first project consists of a series of in-house measurements of the characteristic K and L X-ray absorption spectra (XAS) of several 3d, 4d and 5d transition metals. For this project the target chamber of the von Hamos curved crystal...

Isotope fractionation due to diffusion and sorption of chlorinated hydrocarbons and its implications for identifying reactive processes in aquifer - aquitard systems

Wanner, Philipp ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2016.

Chlorinated hydrocarbons are anthropogenic contaminants, which are known to be possibly carcinogenic to humans. Although the peak production of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the 1970ties was followed by a dramatic decrease in the subsequent decades, chlorinated hydrocarbons are still frequently detected in aquifer systems demonstrating their long-term persistence. When chlorinated hydrocarbons are...

Multi-proxy facies analysis of the Opalinus Clay and depositional implications (Mont Terri rock laboratory, Switzerland)

Lauper, Bruno ; Jaeggi, David ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2018, vol. 111, no. 3, p. 383–398

Located in NW Switzerland, the Mont Terri rock laboratory is a research facility primarily investigating the Opalinus Clay as potential host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. In the Mont Terri area, this Jurassic shale formation is characterized by three distinctive lithofacies: a shaly facies, a carbonate-rich sandy facies and a sandy facies. However, the lithological...

Hypersatellite x-ray decay of $3d$ hollow-$K$-shell atoms produced by heavy-ion impact

Maillard, Yves-Patrick ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Berset, Michel ; Mauron, Olivier ; Raboud, Pierre-Alexandre ; Kavčič, Matjaz ; Rzadkiewicz, J. ; Banaś, Dariusz ; Tökési, K.

In: Physical Review A, 2018, vol. 98, no. 1, p. 012705

We report on the radiative decay of double K-shell vacancy states produced in solid Ca, V, Fe, and Cu targets by impact with about 10 MeV/amu C and Ne ions. The resulting K hypersatellite x-ray emission spectra were measured by means of high- energy-resolution spectroscopy using a von Hamos bent crystal spectrometer. The experiment was carried out at the Philips variable energy cyclotron of...
