X-ray Raman spectroscopy and high-pressure water -- Simo Huotari (Department of Physics, University of Helsinki)

At European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) beamline ID20, a world-leading dedicated spectrometer  for XRS is available. Currently ESRF is being upgraded to ESRF-EBS (Extremely Brilliant Source), and will open for users again in 2020. The x-ray beam can be focused to ~10 micron level and the energy resolution is ~0.5 eV. The scattered x-rays are collected with a large-solid-angle spectrometer with variable scattering angles. We have used XRS for studies of water and other liquids in various thermodynamic conditions, Li-ion battery research, catalysis research, and in-situ hydrogen storage, to name a few examples.
In this talk some capabitilities of XRS are shown with recent results.
