This X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic facility provides compositional, oxidation-state, and depth profiling analysis of solid materials. Two X-ray sources and efficient charge neutralization make this instrument suitable for the analysis of conducting and nonconducting samples. The XPS is integrated with Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry's Shared Instruments for materials chemical analysis.
