Spectroscopy methods are used to measure the response of a system as a function of the incident or outgoing energy. This lecture focusses on X-ray absorption spectroscopy, in particular to Extended X-ray absorption fine structure. Such measurements can be made on non-crystalline and highly disordered solid samples and liquids and are used to determine distances, coordination numbers, and the kind of the surrounding neighbours of the absorbing atom. As such, it can provide complementary information to diffraction data deduced from powder or total scattering experiments. In this lecture the basics of the underlying theory and the modelling of experimental data will be presented.
