X-ray Spectroscopy Research Group
Research Area:Fundamental Characterization, Applied Materials, Measurements
Beamline:BL01B1, BL14B2, BL27SU, BL28B2, BL37XU, BL39XU, BL40XU, BL47XU
Overview of Research Group, Goals and Purposes:
X-ray spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation (SR), such as X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), has been widely used as indispensable methods for solid state physics, materials, devises, catalysis, environmental and earth sciences. Advanced measurement and analysis techniques of X-ray spectroscopy, such as energy-, time-, and spatially-resolved techniques, new operando systems, and fast analysis of emormous amounts of data, have been developed and applied for user experiments. These new techniques and analyses, however, are not familiar for general users yet. The purposes of this group are to promote advanced user applications using latest X-ray spectroscopy techniques and to contribute users to create excellent research achievements at SPring-8. This group also aims at making proposals about new applications and beamline specification at next SR facilities, such as SPring-8 II, and at contributing to promote construction of next SR facilities. The activity plans are as follows.
Submit requests from users to SPring-8 for upgrade of beamlines related to X-ray spectroscopy at SPring-8 and for beamline design and new applications at next SR facilities in collaboration with the Japanese XAFS Society.
