Standard Practice for Elemental Identification by Auger Electron Spectroscopy
|Publication Date:||1 January 1995|
|ICS Code (Physicochemical methods of analysis):||71.040.50|
1.1 This practice outlines the necessary steps for the identification of elements in a given Auger spectrum obtained using conventional electron spectrometers. Spectra displayed as either the electron energy distribution (direct spectrum) or the first derivative of the electron energy distribution are considered.
1.2 This practice applies to Auger spectra generated by electron or X-ray bombardment of the specimen surface; it does not apply to Auger spectra generated by other methods such as ion bombardment.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
