Fig. 1. Zn K-edge XANES measured on free and bound Zn atoms. Contains information on the unoccupied valence orbitals.


Fig. 2. Atomic XANES can be completely described by pre-edge resonances due to transitions from 1s initial state to Rydberg final states below 1s ionisation treshold and absorption edge (arctg) due to transitions into continuum states above 1s ionisation treshold.


Fig. 3. In solid state multiple scattering of photoelectron on neighbor atoms must be taken into account. The calculated spectrum based on muffin-tin approximations is obtained by FEFF8 program for cluster of 180 atoms. Calculation time on 350 MHz PC Pentium II: 10 hours




Fig. 4. Schematic view of photoelectron scattering on neighbor atoms, determining the EXAFS oscilations and the resonances in XANES.

Fig 6. Schematic view of inner shell photoeffect in bound atoms: transitions to bound and continuum orbitals.
