X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a surface-sensitive elemental analysis technique. It is a powerful tool for determining the elemental and chemical state information of specimen surfaces.
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is a surface-sensitive elemental analysis technique. It is a powerful tool for determining the elemental and chemical state information of specimen surfaces. Combined with ion milling, XPS can be applied to depth profiling of thin films, detecting surface contamination of materials, inspecting surface treatments, and other surface characterization in the nanoscale. Its applicability in material characterization is far-reaching from inorganic compounds, metal alloys, polymers, glasses, biomaterials, ion modified materials, coatings, ceramics to semiconductors, etc.
In XPS, a sample is irradiated with the monochromatic x-rays that result in the emission of inner orbital and bonding electrons. The measurement of these electrons binding energies and intensities (from the top 1–10 nm of the sample) allows identification and quantification of the elements on the material’s surface.
