Soft X-ray emission spectroscopy of early transition metal compounds

Publication Date



Soft X-ray emission studies for several early transition metal compounds, such as Sc, Ti and V compounds, have been studied. Raman scattering was found at the 2p → 3d excitation in the transition metal compounds. The elementary excitation of the Raman spectrum is mainly elucidated by the d-d transition within the 3d bands, as well as the interband transition from the O 2p valence band to the conduction band, which consists mainly of transition metal 3d states. The charge transfer transition due to the localized electron picture is dominant in the soft X-ray spectra of Sc compounds. Raman scattering is a powerful tool in the study of the electronic structure of transition metal compounds. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
