X-ray absorption spectra have been measured in total-electron yield mode at the aluminum K edge in gibbsite and related compounds. The experiments were carried out at the UVSOR storage ring in Okazaki, Japan, which is particularly suitable for these measurements because of its relatively tow intensity which permits the use of a quartz monochromator without causing radiation damage to the quartz. It is shown that XAFS spectra of good quality can be obtained.
