Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) has been widely used in the investigation of carbon bonds in carbon based materials thin films because the main peak of the carbon Auger transition involves valence states [4-13].
Specifically, we correlate the lineshape of the double Ba(73 eV)[N.sub.45][O.sub.23][P.sub.1] core-core-valence Auger transition line with amorphous and ordered barium structures.
The Ba(73 eV)[N.sub.45][O.sub.23][P.sub.1] Auger transition line is a core-corevalence transition, which involves the 4d, 5p, and 6s atomic orbitals.
where [DELTA][E.sub.XYZ] is the natural or inherent width of the Auger transition and [DELTA][E.sub.a] is the analyzer resolution all expressed in FWHM [14].
