X-ray fluorescence holography (XFH) is a promising tool for determing the local structures around specified elements. To obtain accurate interatomic distances, we applied inverse Fourier analysis, which has often been used to investigate extended x-ray absorption fine structures, to multiple energy x-ray holograms. The interatomic distances of neighboring atoms around a fluorescing atom were estimated from the 16 experimental holograms of a Au single crystal and most of them were in good agreement with the actual values within an error of 0.3%. The use of inverse Fourier analysis improves the XFH for the evaluation of quantitative local lattice distortion around impurities in single crystals.
