1. XAFS Data Interchange: A single spectrum XAFS data file format
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 6/9/2016
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, M. Newville
Abstract: We propose a standard data format for the interchange of XAFS data. The XAFS Data Interchange (XDI) standard is meant to encapsulate a single spectrum of XAFS along with relevant metadata. XDI is a text-based format with a simple syntax which clearly ...

2. Abiotic bromination of soil organic matter
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 10/15/2015
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Alessandra C Leri
Abstract: Biogeochemical transformations of plant-derived soil organic matter (SOM) involve complex abiotic and microbially mediated reactions. One such reaction is halogenation, which occurs naturally in the soil environment and has been associated with enzym ...

3. Compact X-ray and Extreme-Ultraviolet Light Sources
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 7/10/2015
Authors: Lahsen Assoufid, Uwe Arp, Patrick Naulleau, Sandra Biedron , William Graves
Abstract: Bringing the brightness and power of vast synchrotron and free-electron laser sources to the scale of the lab and clinic marks an important next frontier,and could transform the landscape of X-ray science and technology.

4. Understanding the blue color in antique mosaic mirrored glass from the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 2/4/2015
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Wantana Klysubun, Christoph Hauzenberger, Prapong Klysubun, Yuying Huang, Weeraya Wongtepa, Panidtha Sombunchoo
Abstract: Two samples of the blue glass produced in the middle 19th century from the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand, were studied in order to understand the origin of its blue color. The oxide components and trace elements are quantitatively ...

5. Path degeneracy and EXAFS analysis of disordered materials
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 10/24/2014
Author: Bruce D Ravel
Abstract: The analysis of EXAFS data measured on a material with a disordered local configuration environment around the absorbing atom can be challenging due to the proliferation of photoelectron scattering paths that must be considered in the analysis. In th ...

6. Bromination of marine particulate organic matter through oxidative mechanisms
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 9/14/2014
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Alessandra C Leri, Kathleen Thornton, Lawrence M Mayer
Abstract: Although bromine is considered conservative in seawater, it exhibits a well established correlation with organic carbon in marine sediments. This carbon-bromine association was recently attributed to covalent bonding, with organobromine in sinking pa ...

7. National Synchrotron Light Source II: Long Islands state-of-the-art X-ray microscope
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 5/20/2014
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Scott Calvin, Linnea Russell
Abstract: This is an education and outreach effort that we have undertaken for the benefit of the Photon Sciences Users' Executive Committee. The UEC is the group that represents the user of the National Synchrotron Light Source, which is currently in its fina ...

8. Sample Thickness and Quantitative Concentration Measurements in XANES Spectroscopy
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 5/16/2014
Authors: Alessandra C Leri, Bruce D Ravel
Abstract: While XANES spectroscopy is an established tool for quantitative information on chemical structure and speciation, elemental concentrations are generally quantified by other methods. The edge step in XANES spectra represents the absolute amount of t ...

9. EUV metrology at NIST SURF III for lithography, astronomy, solar physics, and particle detection applications
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 11/27/2011
Author: Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) operates the Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility (SURF III) to support a number of applications of extreme ultraviolet radiation. SURF III is a 400 MeV electron storage ring that ca ...

10. Metrologia
Topic: Synchrotron
Published: 7/8/2011
Authors: Uwe Arp, Zhigang Li, Ping-Shine Shaw, Mathias Richter, Roman Klein, Wolfgang Paustian, Reiner Thornagel
Abstract: We report on a successful bilateral inter-comparison between the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In both laboratories deuterium lamps were calibrated using the calculability o ...
