  author={Martin Magnuson and Fredrik Eriksson and Lars Hultman and Hans Hogberg},
  journal={Journal of Physical Chemistry C},
The variation in local atomic structure and chemical bonding of ZrHx (x = 0.15, 0.30, and 1.16) magnetron sputtered thin films are investigated by Zr K-edge (1s) X-ray absorption near-edge structure and extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopies. A chemical shift of the Zr K-edge toward higher energy with increasing hydrogen content is observed due to charge-transfer and an ionic or polar covalent bonding component between the Zr 4d and the H 1s states with increasing valency for…
