Abstract

We show that Cr subcoatings in beamline optical elements can introduce an additional structure in C K-edge X-ray absorption measurements, which somewhat resembles the well-known losses produced by carbon contamination. The photon throughput variations induced by Cr and C require different treatments when correcting absorption spectra. The potential difficulties in unravelling the two effects could be avoided with efficient filtration of higher-order light.
