Title: Li K-Edge XANES Spectra of Lithium Niobate and Lithium Tantalite

Abstract

The x-ray emission with the single crystal of lithium niobate (LiNbO3) or lithium tantalite (LiTaO3) by thermal changes in a vacuum system is closely concerned with the electronic state of each crystal. Therefore, lithium K-edge x-ray absorption near edge structures (XANES) spectra of these materials were measured in the region from 50 eV to 90 eV by means of total electron yield method (T.E.Y.), using the extremely soft x-ray. Samples were powder of lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) and single crystal of lithium fluoride (LiF), LiNbO3 and LiTaO3 in order to compare the shapes of these XANES spectra. Various peak structures appear in these spectra in the range from 55 eV to 80 eV and each spectrum has different shapes as a result of the difference of bond length and bond angles for the atoms which are in less than 60 nm from the absorbing atom. The relationship between these spectra and the electronic states was discussed by FEFF 8.

  • The N K-edge X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectra of the purine-containing nucleotide, guanosine 5{sup ′}-monophosphate (GMP), in aqueous solution are measured under various pH conditions. The spectra show characteristic peaks, which originate from resonant excitations of N 1s electrons to π* orbitals inside the guanine moiety of GMP. The relative intensities of these peaks depend on the pH values of the solution. The pH dependence is explained by the core-level shift of N atoms at specific sites caused by protonation and deprotonation. The experimental spectra are compared with theoretical spectra calculated by using density functional theory for GMPmore » and the other purine-containing nucleotides, adenosine 5{sup ′}-monophosphate, and adenosine 5{sup ′}-triphosphate. The N K-edge XANES spectra for all of these nucleotides are classified by the numbers of N atoms with particular chemical bonding characteristics in the purine moiety.« less
  • X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectroscopies are tools in widespread use for providing detailed local atomic structure, oxidation state, and magnetic structure information for materials and organometallic complexes. The analysis of these spectra for transition-metal L-edges is routinely performed on the basis of ligand-field multiplet theory because one- and two-particle mean-field ab initio methods typically cannot describe the multiplet structure. Here we show that multireference configuration interaction (MRCI) calculations can satisfactorily reproduce measured XANES spectra for a range of complex iron oxide materials including hematite and magnetite. MRCI Fe L2,3-edge XANES and XMCD spectramore » of Fe(II)O6, Fe(III)O6, and Fe(III)O4 in magnetite are found to be in very good qualitative agreement with experiment and multiplet calculations. Point-charge embedding and small distortions of the first-shell oxygen ligands have only small effects. Oxygen K-edge XANES/XMCD spectra for magnetite investigated by a real-space Green’s function approach complete the very good qualitative agreement with experiment. Material-specific differences in local coordination and site symmetry are well reproduced, making the approach useful for assigning spectral features to specific oxidation states and coordination environments.« less
  • This work reports a theoretical study of the x-ray absorption near-edge structure spectra at the Cu K edge in several Cu(II) complexes with N-coordinating ligands showing a square-planar arrangement around metal cation. It is shown that single-channel multiple-scattering calculations are not able to reproduce the experimental spectra. The comparison between experimental data and ab initio computations indicates the need of including the contribution of two electronic configurations (3d{sup 9} and 3d{sup 10}L) to account for a proper description of the final state during the photoabsorption process. The best agreement between theory and experiment is obtained by considering a relative weightmore » of 68% and 32% for the two absorption channels 3d{sup 10}L and 3d{sup 9}, respectively.« less
