Abstract:

Fourier inversion of EXAFS data is a powerful new technique for structural investigation of non-crystalline materials with the unique capability to determine the near neighbor environment of each type of atom in a complex material. The radial structure function so obtained contains information on the number, distance to, and distribution of atoms surrounding the absorbing atom. The data on Ge and Ge02 generally agree with previous findings but with added detail. The environment of both Ge and Se in amorphous GeSe show a significant change from the crystalline material with evidence for local satisfaction of the directed bonding tendencies of each atomic species.
