Background subtraction for fluorescence EXAFS data of a very dilute dopant Z in Z + 1 host

Medling, Scott; Bridges, F.


When conducting EXAFS at the Cu K-edge for ZnS:Cu with very low Cu concentration (<0.04% Cu), a large background was present that increased with energy. This background arises from a Zn X-ray Raman peak, which moves through the Cu fluorescence window, plus the tail of the Zn fluorescence peak. This large background distorts the EXAFS and must be removed separately before reducing the data. A simple means to remove this background is described.
