Abstract:

A multipurpose surface analysis chamber equipped with x- ray photoelectron spectroscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry and Auger electron spectroscopy has been constructed and installed. The Leybold LHS-12 system which was partially funded from this grant, comprises both high pressure and ultrahigh vacuum sample preparation and reaction chambers, thermal evaporation and radiofrequency sputtering sources and a rapid entry load lock. This system is fully operational, meeting all specifications, and is being used in a wide variety of surface science and other applications. These include the XPS study of the decomposition of alkyl halides in support of our surface Raman spectroscopy efforts, and XPS study of the X-ray induced degradation of thin polymer films and a study of the role of peroxide ions in the mechanism of high temperature super conductivity. A multipurpose surface analysis chamber equipped with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry and Auger electron spectroscopy has been constructed and installed.
