  1. 1. Structure Modeling with X-ray Absorption and Reverse Monte Carlo: Applications to Water

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physics, Stockholm University

    Author : Mikael Leetmaa; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water structure; x-ray absorption; spectroscopy; diffraction; reverse monte carlo; XAS; EXAFS; XANES; RMC; TP-DFT spectrum calculations; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Chemical Physics; kemisk fysik;

    Abstract : Water is an important substance. It is part of us, of our environment, and is a fundamental prerequisite for the existence of life as we know it. The structure of water is still, after over 100 years of research on the subject, however under debate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Probing unoccupied electronic states in aqueous solutions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Lars-Åke Näslund; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; x-ray absorption; x-ray absorption spectroscopy; XAS; NEXAFS; water; liquid water; aqueous solution; hydrogen bond; hydrogen bond network; local geometry; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : Water is one of the most common compounds on earth and is essential for all biological activities. Water has, however, been a mystery for many years due to the large number of unusual chemical and physical properties, e.g. decreased volume during melting and maximum density at 4 °C. READ MORE
