Abstract

Can current experimental techniques and analytical procedures produce x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) which is independent of the beam line or synchrotron used? We investigate the consequence upon XAFS interpretation of typical systematic errors, including determination of the edge energy, detector response and synchrotron bandwidth. Using the highest accuracy data set of the mass-attenuation coefficient collected so far, we consider a series of systematic effects in the analyses of both the near-edge and extended energy regions of the spectrum. We investigate whether conclusions derived from an experiment using a given analytical procedure are consistent when performed on different s..
