### 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.
