Isotope and temperature effects in liquid water probed by x-ray absorption and resonant x-ray emission spectroscopy.
High-resolution x-ray absorption and emission spectra of liquid water exhibit a strong isotope effect. Further, the emission spectra show a splitting of the 1b1 emission line, a weak temperatureExpand
