Commission on XAFS

Our commision is involved in nine Microsymposia as part of the 25th General Assembly and Congress of the IUCr, that will be held in Prague (Czech Republic) from the 14th to the 22nd of August 2021.

Those are:

1) Advanced Methods for analysis of XAFS and Crystallographic data (CXAFS, CommDat)

2) Spectroscopy applied to electrochemistry: operando studies (CXAFS & CNMR)

3) Catalysis: functionalized materials studied by XRD and XAFS (CXAFS)

4) XAS and crystallography allied for geomaterials and environmental problems (CXAFS, CIMS & CPD)

5) Disordered materials: spectroscopic and scattering techniques (CXAFS, CEC, CNS & CPD)

6) Matter at extreme conditions at SR and XFEL: complementarity of spectroscopy and diffraction (CXAFS, CSynr, CHP, CPD & CQC)

7) X-ray spectrometry and X-ray diffraction in art and archaeology (CXAFS & CCACH)

8) 4th generation SR and XFEL Facilities (CXAFS, CSynr & CBM)

9) Combining x-ray diffraction and spectroscopy to characterize materials (CXAFS & CPD)

We welcome all submissions, abstracts, etc... and hope this will be a great programme!
