Be sure to look at the [[Workshops|Workshops Page]] for material from recent workshops. Many of these workshops have slides from talks posted on-line.

== XAFS Tutorials and Overviews hosted off-site ==
 * [[http://www.nsls.bnl.gov/users/access/modules/xafs/|XAFS Online Orientation]], in interactive Flash-based tutorial produced by the National Synchrotron Light Source
 * [[http://gbxafs.iit.edu/training/tutorials.html|XAFS Tutorials]] from Grant Bunker, at IIT
 * [[http://srs.dl.ac.uk/XRS/Theory/theory.html|EXAFS Theory]] from Daresbury Lab, UK
 * [[http://www.p-ng.si/~arcon/xas/xas/xas.htm|XAS Overview]] from Iztok Arčon, University of Nova Gorica, Jozef Stefan Institute, Slovenia
 * [[http://rscott.myweb.uga.edu/protocols.html#XASTut|A set of XAS tutorials with a biological science bent]] from Robert Scott's group at University of Georgia
 * [[http://www.umich.edu/~jphgroup/XAS_Course/index.htm|A course presented by Jim Panner-Hahn]] at the University of Sydney, August-September, 2005
 * [[http://www.cells.es/Beamlines/CLAESS/XAFScourse|XAFS course]] from K. Klementiev, ALBA, Spain
 * Bruce Ravel keeps a collection of lectures on various XAS topics at https://github.com/bruceravel/XAS-Education/downloads

== XAFS Tutorials and Overviews hosted on xafs.org (PDF format except where noted) ==
Except where noted, these are PDF files containing sets of slides for an oral presentation

 * Matt Newville's Tutorials: The last two files are companions to the longer write-up, containing similar material in a form more suitable for a lecture. This material (write-up, and the corresponding slides) is a work in progress. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  * [[attachment:Newville_xas_fundamentals.pdf|The Fundamentals of XAFS]]: a ~40 page introduction to XAFS, aimed at the advanced undergraduate level.
  * [[attachment:Newville_Intro.pdf|Fundamentals of X-ray Absorption Fine Structure]]
  * [[attachment:Newville_Expt.pdf|Anatomy of an XAFS Experiment]]
 * Shelly Kelly's Tutorials:
  * [[attachment:Basics_of_XAFS_to_chi_2009.pdf|The Basics of processing chi(k) data in Athena]]: introducing the basics of processing chi(k) data in Athena.
  * [[attachment:Basics_of_XAFS_analysis_2009.pdf|The Basics of modeling EXAFS spectra in Artemis]]: introducing the basics of modeling EXAFS spectra in Artemis.

== XAFS Tutorials and Overviews in languages other than English ==
 * [[attachment:Xie_XAFSv1.ppt|Introduction to XAFS]] from Yaning Xie, Senior Researcher at Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility (BSRF) and Institute of High Energy Physics, Beijing, China.

== Information on Specific Topics in XAFS ==
 * [[Experiment/OverAbsorption|Information about various sample-related distortions to measured XAS data, and how to avoid them]]
