2p3d Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering of Cobalt Oxides

Resonant inelastic X-ray scattering is a technique to investigate the electronic and magnetic nature of materials. It has unique features being photon polarization dependent, element specific, orbital specific and bulk sensitive.

In this thesis I study different aspects of the electronic and magnetic structure of cobalt oxides. From the comparison of the experiments and the simulations I show that resonant inelastic X-ray scattering can reveal the spin states and the dispersion of electron-hole excitations in the cobalt oxides.
