Modern ESCA: The Principles and Practice of X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy is a unique text/reference that focuses on the branch of electron spectroscopy generally labeled as either Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis (ESCA) or X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). The book emphasizes the use of core level and valence band binding energies, their shifts, and line widths. It describes the background, present status, and possible future uses of a number of recently developed branches of ESCA, including:
The ESCA Process.
The ESCA Spectrometer and Its Use.
Quantum Mechanical Arguments.
Established ESCA Procedures.
Loss Spectroscopy in ESCA: Its Causes and Utilization.
Old Problem Areas: New ESCA Analysis Methods.
Areas of ESCA Application.
Survey of Additional Promising New Methods.
