Summary

EXAFS and XANES are applied to the study of semiconductor-metal transitions of tetrahedrally bonded crystals under high pressure. When the variation of single-bond length is to be determined, EXAFS data can be easily and conveniently analyzed by a phase difference method. For more general cases, EXAFS data can be analyzed by a curve fitting method. With both methods, the accuracy of the estimated bond length is 0.01 A and that of the coordination number is 0.2. Calculations based on full multiple scattering theory show that the XANES spectrum is quite sensitive to the arrangements and electronic states of the atoms surrounding the absorbing atom. It is shown that EXAFS is a powerful tool for analyzing structural parameters under pressure, and that XANES is potentially useful for stodying structural and electronic states of a material under pressure.
