X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy / XPS

XPS or X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (also known as ESCA-Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis) is essentially a surface analysis technique that is able to quantitatively determine the atomic composition of a material. It can only be used on materials that are vacuum compatible and While generally used for surface analysis it can be used to depth profiling of thin films down to about 10nm.
