SPring-8 Workshop on XAS and RIXS Data Analysis Using CTM4XAS and CTM4RIXS

Nov 26, 2013


Speaker/Lecturer: Prof. Frank de Groot, Utrecht University



A full day lecture and hands-on analysis session on Charge Transfer Multiplet Calculations for X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (CTM4XAS) will be

held at SPring-8 on Nov 26, 2013. CTM4XAS is a semi-empirical program to analyze transition metal L- and M-edge transitions by evaluating the

effects of crystal field and charge transfer parameters on the atomic multiplets. CTM4RIXS is an interactive tool that calculates the two-dimensional

Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) planes within the charge transfer multiplet model developed in the CTM4XAS software.

2p3d, 3p3d, 1s2p and 1s3p RIXS spectra are included. The instructor will be one of the the authors of the program,

Professor Frank de Groot from Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
