Chemical speciation and electronic structure with
X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS)
X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is a powerful chemical analysis technique used for research in a broad range of applications, including:
Catalysts: chemical states of oxides, nitrides, and carbides being explored as catalysts
Batteries/fuel cells/solar cells: oxidation state of transition metals (e.g. in lithium ion batteries) as a function of charge and discharge cycles
Nanoparticles and nanomaterials: structural analysis, coordination number, disorder, geometry, reactivity
The QuantumLeap is the first laboratory XAS offering synchrotron-like performance.
