Experimental and theoretical studies of dipole and quadrupole contributions to the vanadium K -edge XANES for VOPO 4 ⋅ 2 H 2 O xerogel

Abstract

Angular dependence of the vanadium K-edge x-ray appearance near-edge structure (XANES) for the VOPO4⋅2H2O xerogel is thoroughly studied both experimentally and theoretically. The main attention is paid to the pre-edge fine structure (PEFS) of the spectra which was shown earlier to be a useful tool for the atomic short order investigations. Good quantitative agreement between theory and experiment obtained for both dipole and quadrupole contributions to the spectra proves validity of the calculation method developed and enables us to ascertain the nature of all the features in the PEFS’s. The p−d mixture effect due to distortion of the central coordination octahedron and the quadrupole transitions are proved to be the only mechanisms responsible for the PEFS formation in the case considered. We show that in order to achieve quantitative agreement between experimental and theoretical spectra, it is necessary to include the effect of atomic vibrations, which makes the forbidden transitions to molecular orbitals of the central octahedron (MOCO’s) dipole allowed, and to take into account deviation of the crystal layers from the substrate plane, which is not a single crystal but a texture.
