The reaction mechanism of the direct photoreduction of a Rh ion complex to a Rh species induced by pulsed ultraviolet laser irradiation was studied using dispersive X-ray absorption fine structure (DXAFS) spectroscopy. The time-resolved X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) showed the absence of isosbestic points and suggested that more than two Rh species contribute toward the direct photoreduction of Rh. Analysis of the time-resolved XANES data by singular value deposition showed that the direct photoreduction involves three Rh species. Multivariate curve resolution by alternating least-squares analysis (MCR-ALS) of the time-resolved XANES data gave pure spectra and concentration profiles of the three Rh species. The Rh species were assigned to Rh, Rh, and Rh species based on the features of the pure XANES spectra. The concentration profiles suggested that the direct photoreduction proceeds in the order of Rh Rh Rh. A reaction mechanism, which was proposed involving photoreductions of Rh and Rh, photoinduced autocatalytic reductions of Rh and Rh, and photooxidation of Rh, well reproduced the concentration profiles of three Rh species.

We report a trial of the valence control for mixed valence iron triangular oxide YbFeO in order to develop an effective technique to control the frustration of charges in strongly correlated electron systems. The electro-chemical doping of Li into YbFeO was examined on the cell type sample similar to the Li-ion secondary battery cell. Systematic change of the lattice constant, Fe-Fe and Fe-Yb distance were observed with Li doping. Maximum value of the doping was over 300 mAh/g. An EXAFS experiment indicated that Li positioned between Yb octahedron layer (U-layer) and Fe-bipyramidal layer (W-layer). However, detailed change of iron valence state of YbFeO was not clearly observed because of the superimpose of the signal from iron metal nano particles in XANES observation. The results indicate that the electrochemical method might be one of the potential technique to control the frustration of charges in YbFeO.

In the decommissioning of the Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, analysis of fuel debris to understand its characteristics is very important. The fuel debris removed for testing and analyzing will be fine particulates. Non-destructive analytical methods using X-rays are effective for such samples, but in order to apply them to fine particles, the X-rays must be focused to the micrometer order. For this purpose, the Kirkpatrick-Baez (KB) mirror was introduced. In this paper, we record the selection, specification, adjustment of the mirror, and write down the example of mapping of elements and evaluation of their valence by this mirror.

We measured X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and Raman spectra of isopolymolybdates(VI) in HNO solution (0.15- 4.0 M), which change their geometries depending on acid concentration, and performed simultaneous resolution of the XAFS and Raman data using a multivariate curve resolution by alternating least-squares (MCR-ALS) analysis. In iterative ALS optimization, initial data matrices were prepared by two different methods. The MCR-ALS result of single XAFS data matrix shows large dependence on the preparation method of the initial data matrices. The MCR-ALS result of an augmented matrix of Raman and XAFS data has little dependence on the initial data matrices. It indicates that the augmentation method effectively improves the rotation ambiguities in the MCR-ALS analysis of the XAFS data. Based on the model fitting of the pure EXAFS oscillations, we revealed the change of [MoO(HO)] [MoO(HO)] [HMoO(HO)] in the highly concentrated HNO solution.

We have conducted X-ray absorption spectroscopy study for perovskite cobaltite PrSrCoO (00.5) to understand Sr doping effect and magnetocaloric measurement for PrSrCoO to reveal the origin of magnetic anomaly at around 110 K. The extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) measurements at the Co -edge suggest that the average valence value of Co ions increases, the interatomic distance of Co-O bonding decreases, and the local distortion of CoO octahedron increases as Sr is doped in PrCoO. The interatomic distance of Co-O bonding shrinks more greatly for the larger doping region. No temperature dependent electronic and structural changes were observed from Co -edge X-ray absorption spectra in the whole thermal range studied (17-300 K). The magnetocaloric effect of PrSrCoO indicates the change of magnetic structure at 110 K.

Reaction kinetics of laser-induced particle formation in an aqueous solution of PdCl was investigated by transmission electron microscope (TEM) and dispersive X-ray absorption fine structure (DXAFS). The Pd particle was generated by irradiation of nanosecond pulsed 266-nm laser. The TEM observation showed dependence of the particle size on the laser fluence and promotion of the particle growth by irradiation of high-fluence laser. The DXAFS data give us the Pd concentration. Temporal changes of the Pd concentration analyzed based on Finke-Watzky two step mechanism. The analysis elucidates that the laser photon contributes to the reduction of the PdCl ion by the one-photon process and to the autocatalytic growth of the Pd particles by the multi-photon process.

A synchrotron radiation photoemission electron microscope (SR-PEEM) was applied to demonstrate pinpoint analysis of micrometer-sized weathered biotite clay particles with artificially adsorbed cesium (Cs) atoms. Despite the insulating properties of the clay, we observed the spatial distributions of constituent elements (Si, Al, Cs, Mg, Fe) without charging issues. We found that Cs atoms were likely to be adsorbed evenly over the entire particle. Spatially-resolved X-ray absorption spectra (XAS) of the Cs M-edge region showed Cs to be present in a monocation state (Cs). Further pinpoint XAS measurements were also performed at the Fe L-edge to determine the chemical valence of the Fe atoms. Our results demonstrate the utility of SR-PEEM as a tool for spatially-resolved chemical analyses of various environmental substances, which is not limited by the poor conductivity of samples.

A calcium (Ca)-deficient hydroxyapatite was investigated for its potential to remove Sr from environmentally relevant water. We conducted sorption tests on solutions having Mg and Ca as competing cations at the Sr concentration of 0.05 mmol/L. The Ca-deficient hydroxyapatite maintained its high Sr sorption ratio: the sorption ratio was above 80% in the presence of Mg and Ca in the concentrations between 0.1 to 1.0 mmol/L, whereas stoichiometric hydroxyapatite showed a lower ratio even in the presence of small amounts of Mg and Ca. The bonding states of Sr onto the Ca-deficient hydroxyapatite were evaluated by extended X-ray absorption fine structure measurements. The results indicated that there are specific sorption sites in Ca-deficient hydroxyapatite where Sr could be stably and preferentially immobilized.

ZnN is a possible candidate for the diluent material for nitride fuels containing transuranium elements. Pellets of inert matrix material ZrN, and surrogate nitride fuel material DyZrN, are fabricated for the purpose of investigating the crystal structure. Lattice parameters of DyZrN followed the Vegard's low, in spite of the large lattice mismatch ( 7%) between DyN and ZrN. Local structure analysis was performed by X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and atomic pair-distribution function (PDF) methods. The Zr-N nearest neighbor bond distance changed as changing the Dy composition. The complex local structure of DyN and ZrN is related to the preferable effects of ZrN.
