Paper Abstract

X-ray absorption fine-structure (XAFS) is a local structural probe that is complementary to diffraction techniques. We discuss the types of information that can be obtained using this probe and then consider several examples, including the distortion about Co in YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO), an unusual negative correlation of atom pair displacements in HgBa2CuO4+(delta ), and the distortions about the O(4) atom in thin films and single crystals of YBCO.
