Theoretical Modelling of High-Resolution X-Ray Absorption Spectra at Uranium M4 Edge

  • Jindřich Kolorenč (a1) and Kristina O. Kvashnina (a2) (a3)


We investigate the origin of satellite features that appear in the high-resolution x-ray absorption spectra measured at the uranium M4 edge in compounds where the uranium atoms are in the U6+ oxidation state. We employ a material-specific Anderson impurity model derived from the electronic structure obtained by the density-functional theory.
