Total Electron-Yield XAS as an In Situ Probe for Studies of Catalysts and Other Materials in Reactive Gas Environments

Sven L.M. Schroeder
PhD Thesis, University of Cambridge, March 1996

Notes: The pdf files were produced with Word2000 and Adobe Acrobat 4.0 under Windows98 using 600 dpi resolution. They have not been tested very extensively yet. In a very few places, unusual fonts seem to have converted into typographically unpretty stuff, but you can probably still read it.
