The study of the electronic and structural properties of matter has received in the recent past a great impulse due to the advent of synchrotron radiation. The unique properties of this radiation source, like its intensity, brilliance, polarization, tunability and collimation, to cite a few, coupled with sophisticated data acquisition techniques have made possible the explosive growth of all kinds of spectroscopic research. In particular inner shell photoemission and photoabsorption spectroscopies have received progressively more and more attention as a source of information about the electronic and structural properties of physical systems. Strangely enough, these high energy spectroscopies have been shown to be able to provide useful information on both the excited as well as the ground state of the systems under investigation.
