The samples were analyzed also using Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis (E.S.C.A).
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS, sometimes also referred to as ESCA, electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis) is a broadly applicable surface analysis technique that can detect all elements except hydrogen and helium without the use of standards.
The two most popular instruments in the surface analysis field--ESCA (electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis, also known as x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) and AES (Auger electron spectroscopy) systems--have been refined over the past several years to the point where performance is approaching theoretical detection limits.
