Recordings of presentations from the XAS Journal club, available on YouTube.

  • X-ray periodic table of edges & emission lines.

  • X-ray attenuation calculations.

  • Analyzer Darwin width and crystal calculations.

The X-ray Data Booklet from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

A comprehensive program for processing and analyzing XAFS data.

Designed for pre-processing laboratory XAS data generated on easyXAFS instruments, this package provides a graphical interface for combining and correcting data files for subsequent analysis with standard XAFS tools like Athena/Artemis. Software package developed at the University of Sheffield, by Prof. Neil Hyatt, Ms. Lucy Mottram, Dr Martin Stennett and Mr. Marco Seddon-Ferretti.

A community site for x-ray absorption fine-structure (XAFS) and related spectroscopies. Sponsored by the International XAFS Society.​

Periodic table of recommended crystal analyzers for element edges and emission lines.

A global resource: providing information and updates about light sources research and achievements, and opportunities for careers and international collaboration.

A program for calculating the mass and absorbance steps of XAFS transmission-mode samples.

Tutorials on X-ray absorption and related spectroscopies.

Publications featuring datasets from easyXAFS prototypes and customer instruments
