Title: Investigation of Room Temperature Oxidation of Cu in Air by Yoneda-XAFS

Abstract

The structure of thin copper oxide layers which are formed on metallic Cu due to the exposure to air are investigated with Yoneda-XAFS and ReflEXAFS. The measured Yoneda-XAFS data were compared to quantitative model calculations in the framework of the distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) assuming different model structures for the oxide layer. Yoneda-XAFS fine structure spectra measured for various different grazing angles show that the experimental data are best described by a model structure consisting of a duplex type oxide layer with an outer layer of CuO (tenorite) in direct contact with the gas atmosphere and an inner Cu2O (cuprite) layer at the interface to the underlying Cu metal.
