Abstract X-ray atomic properties of Nickel were investigated in a singular approach that combines different experimental techniques to obtain new and useful reliable values of atomic fundamental parameters for X-ray spectrometric purposes and for comparison to theoretical predictions. We determined the mass attenuation coefficients in an energy range covering the L- and K- absorption edges,...

Distribution of aluminum over different T-sites in ferrierite zeolites studied with aluminum valence to core X-ray emission spectroscopy

Bohinc, R. ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; B³achucki, Wojciech Maria ; Zeeshan, Faisal ; Kayser, Yves ; Nachtegaal, Maarten ; Pinar, A. B. ; Bokhoven, Jeroen A. van

In: Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 2017, vol. 19, no. 43, p. 29271–29277

The potential of valence to core Al X-ray emission spectroscopy to determine aluminum distribution in ferrierite zeolites was investigated. The recorded emission spectra of four samples prepared with different structure directing agents exhibit slight variations in the position of the main emission peak and the intensity of its low energy shoulder. Theoretical calculations indicate that an...

Double K-shell photoionization and hypersatellite x-ray transitions of 12⩽Z⩽23 atoms

Hoszowska, Joanna ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Cao, Wei ; Fennane, Karima ; Kayser, Yves ; Szlachetko, Monika ; Szlachetko, Jakub ; Kavčič, Matjaz

In: Physical Review A, 2010, vol. 82, no. 6, p. 063408

Single-photon double K-shell ionization of low-Z neutral atoms in the range 12⩽Z⩽23 is investigated. The experimental method was based on measurements of the high- resolution Kαh hypersatellite x-ray spectra following the radiative decay of the K-shell double-vacancy states excited by monochromatic synchrotron radiation. The photon energy dependence of the double K-shell ionization was...

X-ray techniques have evolved over decades to become highly refined tools for a broad range of investigations. Importantly, these approaches rely on X-ray measurements that depend linearly on the number of incident X-ray photons. The advent of X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs) is opening the ability to reach extremely high photon numbers within ultrashort X-ray pulse durations and is leading...

We report on nonlinear interaction of solid Fe with intense femtosecond hard x-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) pulses. The experiment was performed at the CXI end-station of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) by means of high- resolution x-ray emission spectroscopy. The focused x-ray beam provided extreme fluence of ~10⁵ photons/Ų. Two-photon absorption leading to K-shell hollow atom...

In: Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, 2015, p. -

Depth-profiling measurements by means of synchrotron radiation based grazing XRF techniques, i.e., grazing emission X-ray fluorescence (GEXRF) and grazing incidence X-ray fluorescence (GIXRF), present a promising approach for the non-destructive, sub-nanometer scale precision characterization of ultra shallow ion-implantations. The nanometer resolution is of importance with respect to actual...

In: Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, 2014, vol. 27, no. 9, p. 1432–1438

In this work two synchrotron radiation-based depth-sensitive X-ray fluorescence techniques, grazing incidence X-ray fluorescence (GIXRF) and grazing emission X-ray fluorescence (GEXRF), are compared and their potential for non-destructive depth-profiling applications is investigated. The depth-profiling capabilities of the two methods are illustrated for five aluminum-implanted silicon wafers all...

Various 3-dimensional nano-scaled periodic structures with different configurations and periods deposited on the surface of silicon and silica substrates were investigated by means of the grazing incidence and grazing emission X-ray fluorescence techniques. Apart from the characteristics which are typical for particle- and layer-like samples, the measured angular intensity profiles show...
