Correcting electronic spectra for distortions caused by inelastic collisions of photoelectrons
- 23 Downloads
A procedure is developed for correcting X-ray photoelectron spectra for distortions caused by inelastic collisions of photoelectrons, leading to an intense tail on the side of higher bond energies. The procedure was used to correct the form of the valence band X-ray photoelectron spectra of pure copper and a Ti-Ni-Cu alloy.
