Abstract:

In work performed by researchers in the Physics Department at NC State University, studies of the local structure of GeSbTe alloys were studied using Extended X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy, or EXAFS. Using the spectroscopic capabilities provided by the MCAT line at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory, examination of the absorption edges of all three elements Ge, Sb and Te were investigated. This effort was de-scoped because AFOSR dropped funding after one year.
