We are delighted to announce that the Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) themed issue Recent Advances in Modelling Core-Electron Spectroscopy is now online and free to access until the end of July 2023.
Core electron spectra have been extremely useful probes of the local atomic and electronic structure and dynamics of materials, due to their local, element-specific nature. These phenomena include X-ray photoemission (XPS), X-ray absorption (XAS), X-ray emission (XES), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), and resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS). The theoretical treatment of these processes requires diverse modelling techniques for excited states, dynamic response, and thermodynamic behavior which are material-specific and capture the effects of many-electron interactions and inelastic processes. In recent years, there has been a rapid development of these approaches which have become highly quantitative, driven in part by complementary advances in computation and experimental precision.
Guest edited by John J. Rehr, David Prendergast and Johannes Lischner, this collection showcases research in all aspects of the theory and computational techniques relevant to core-electron spectroscopy.
