Core-Hole-Electron Interaction in X-Ray Raman Scattering



J A. Soininen, K Hamalainen, W A. Caliebe, C C. Kao, Eric L. Shirley


This work applies a recently developed first-principles scheme for calculating core-excited states in solids tonon-resonant inelastic x-ray scattering. Within the computational scheme the interaction between the excited electron and the core hole is explicitly taken into account. The calculated results are compared with recentexperimental results of inelastic x-ray scattering from K shells of lithium, beryllium and carbon in lithium fluoride, beryllium oxide and diamond, respectively. A good overall agreement even for the near-edge structure between the experimental and the theoretical spectra is found in all cases.
