NIST X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Database: Version 4.0

Rate our Products and Services

Version 4.0 of the NIST X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Database contains over 29,000 data records, an increase of 6,844 data records from Version 3.4. For the newly added records, considerable information is supplied about the specimen materials (e.g., specimen morphology and methods of specimen preparation, processing, and characterization), XPS measurement conditions (e.g., type of X-ray source and whether an X-ray monochromator was utilized), and XPS data analysis (e.g., background-subtraction method, peak-location method, and line widths).

The new data records originated from an evaluation of over 5,000 scientific papers that were published generally between 1993 and 1996. Data are given for the positions of photoelectron lines, chemical shifts, doublet splittings, and surface and interface core-level shifts. In addition, data are provided for the kinetic energies of Auger lines measured in an XPS spectrum and for Auger parameters.
