Electron energy loss spectra contain information on how many nearest neighbours an atom has at what distance and in which direction, what kind of site an atom occupies (e.g. octahedral or tetrahedral), and even what valency state an atom is in. This paper reviews several structure analysis techniques based on these principles that have been recently developed at ASU.
