Novel reference-free methods for the determination of the instrumental response of Laue-type bent crystal spectrometers

Szlachetko, Monika ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Szlachetko, Jakub ; Dousse, Jean-Claude

In: Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, 2019, vol. 34, no. 11, p. 2325–2332

We report on novel reference-free methods to determine the instrumental resolution of transmission-type bent crystal spectrometers. The novel methods are based on the measurements of a selected X-ray line in several orders of diffraction. It is shown that the angular broadening of the spectrometer and the natural linewidth of the selected transition can be obtained directly from the novel...

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...

A DuMond-type crystal spectrometer for synchrotron-based X-ray emission studies in the energy range of 15–26 keV

Jagodziński, Paweł ; Szlachetko, Jakub ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Szlachetko, Monika ; Vogelsang, U. ; Banaś, Dariusz ; Pakendorf, T. ; Meents, A. ; Bokhoven, Jeroen A. van ; Kubala-Kukuś, Aldona ; Pajek, Marek ; Nachtegaal, Maarten

In: Review of Scientific Instruments, 2019, vol. 90, no. 6, p. 063106

The design and performance of a high-resolution transmission-type X-ray spectrometer for use in the 15–26 keV energy range at synchrotron light sources is reported. Monte Carlo X-ray-tracing simulations were performed to optimize the performance of the transmission-type spectrometer, based on the DuMond geometry, for use at the Super X-ray absorption beamline of the Swiss Light Source at...

Metallic contact between MoS2 and Ni via Au nanoglue

Shi, Xinying ; Posysaev, Sergei ; Huttula, Marko ; Pankratov, Vladimir ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Zeeshan, Faisal ; Niu, Yuran ; Zakharov, Alexei ; Li, Taohai ; Miroshnichenko, Olga ; Zhang, Meng ; Wang, Xiao ; Huang, Zhongjia ; Saukko, Sami ; González, Diego López ; Dijken, Sebastiaan van ; Alatalo, Matti ; Cao, Wei

In: Small, 2018, vol. 14, no. 22, p. 1704526

A critical factor for electronics based on inorganic layered crystals stems from the electrical contact mode between the semiconducting crystals and the metal counterparts in the electric circuit. Here, a materials tailoring strategy via nanocomposite decoration is carried out to reach metallic contact between MoS2 matrix and transition metal nanoparticles. Nickel nanoparticles (NiNPs) are ...

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...

High energy resolution off-resonant spectroscopy: A review

B³achucki, Wojciech ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Kayser, Yves ; Stachura, Regina ; Tyra³a, Krzysztof ; Wojtaszek, Klaudia ; Sá, Jacinto ; Szlachetko, Jakub

In: Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy, 2017, vol. 136, p. 23–33

We review the high energy resolution off-resonant spectroscopy (HEROS) technique. HEROS probes the unoccupied electronic states of matter in a single-shot manner thanks to the combination of off-resonant excitation around atomic core states using wavelength dispersive X-ray detection setups. In this review we provide a general introduction to the field of X-ray spectroscopy together with the...

In situ high energy resolution off-resonant spectroscopy applied to a time-resolved study of single site Ta catalyst during oxidation

B³achucki, Wojciech ; Szlachetko, Jakub ; Kayser, Yves ; Dousse, Jean-Claude ; Hoszowska, Joanna ; Zeeshan, Faisal ; Sá, Jacinto

In: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms, 2017, vol. 411, no. Supplement C, p. 63–67

In the present work high energy resolution off-resonant X-ray spectroscopy (HEROS) was employed at a synchrotron to study a silica supported Ta(V) bisalkyl catalyst activated in hydrogen. The Ta Lα1 HEROS spectra were measured during oxidation of the starting complex and the relative species’ concentration was successfully retrieved as a function of time using the fingerprint HEROS spectra...

In: Metrologia, 2017, p. -

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,...
