Paper Abstract

Problems in lineshape analysis for quantitation of XPS data on metals are reviewed. Comparison is made of deconvolution versus curve fitting approaches. Deconvolution methods successfully applied to AES data, using electron-energy-loss spectra, are not similarly successful with XPS data. An optimum approach is data fitting using previously formulated lineshapes that account for the large intrinsic energy losses which cause significant distortion of metal core level spectra.
