    DESIG: E902 05 ^RATIONALE:

    Rationale

    This practice covers a procedure for checking some of the operating characteristics of an X-ray photoelectron spectrometer.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E42 on Auger Electron Spectroscopy and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy, this practice was withdrawn without replacement in November 2011 due to its limited use by the industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers a procedure for checking some of the operating characteristics of an X-ray photoelectron spectrometer. Tests herein provide checks of the repeatability of intensity measurements and the drift of the intensities with time. This practice may be conducted at the same time as the spectrometer energy calibration using Practice E 2108.

    1.2 LimitationsThis practice is meant to augment, and not to replace, the calibration procedures recommended by the manufacturer of the spectrometer. This practice is also not meant to be used as a means of comparison between X-ray photoelectron spectrometers, but only as a self-consistent check of the operating characteristics of an individual spectrometer.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
