Introductory and Tutorial Information on XAFS
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

Matt Newville's Tutorials
attachment:Newville_xas_fundamentals.pdf The Fundamentals of XAFS (PDF format): a ~40 page introduction to XAFS, aimed at the advanced undergraduate level.
attachment:Newville_Intro.pdf Fundamentals of X-ray Absorption Fine Structure, a set of slides for an oral presentation.
attachment:Newville_Expt.pdf Anatomy of an XAFS Experiment, a set of slides for an oral presentation.
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.
