Abstract : A particle-in-a-box approximation to the problem of x-ray absorption fine structure has been successful in predicting many features of the effect. The theory successfully accounts for the extended fine structure observed on any x-ray absorption edge in crystalline and amorphous solids, liquids and gases. A simple data analysis technique was developed by which the absorption fine structure can be 'indexed' and atomic distances calculated. Examples are given for crystalline, amorphous, and gaseous materials. (Author)
