Title: Recommended Auger Parameters for 42 Elemental Solids
Published: December 04, 2011
Abstract: Values of the Auger parameter are presented for 42 elemental solids. These values were determined from evaluated Auger-electron kinetic energies and photoelectron binding energies (BEs). Small adjustments were made to earlier values of photoelectron BEs to take account of newer reference energies recommended for calibration of BE scales. The recommended values of the Auger parameter should be useful in the determination of chemical state by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
