This 3 days course will be on X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS/ESCA) including Data Processing. It will cover in detail the principles of XPS, instrumentation, imaging, qualitative and quantitative analysis, artefacts in spectra, and depth profiling. Examples of Data Processing will be given throughout the course and will illustrate results of processing with many different software programs, including PHI Multipak, Service Physics ESCA 2007, QUASES Tougaard, and CasaXPS. This 3-day course is not designed to teach users how to use these software programs, but to illustrate their applications to various aspects of processing XPS/ESCA data. See the 2-day CasaXPS training course which follows this course.
It is taught by John T. Grant, who has over 40 years experience in surface analysis, and who has been teaching such courses for many years. He had been a Distinguished Research Scientist at the University of Dayton for over 30 years. He is now a consultant in surface analysis. He is co-editor of the book: Surface Analysis by Auger and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy
The course is designed for scientists, engineers, technicians, and students, who would like a detailed understanding of the principles and uses of XPS/ESCA and Data Processing for surface analysis and depth profiling. This course can be taken individually or with the 2-day Casa XPS training as a 5-day package
