Abstract:

S1. Procedure for determining SiO2 thickness using XPS Figures S1 and S2 show typical XPS data for SiO2 films prepared as described in the main text. The Si 2p data Fig. S2a show a peak from the substrate, which is partially resolved into a 2p12 and 2p32 spin-orbit doublet, and a peak from SiO2, which is too broad to resolve. Other features, due to SiOx x2 at the interface, are not readily observable. The relative integrated area, after background subtraction, is given by S1 where I is the integrated area of the SiO2 or the Si peak, N is the number of Si atoms per unit volume in either material, is the Si 2p photoionization cross-section, and Vs is the volume sampled. In the situation of interest here, all the other terms influencing the XPS intensity detector gain, analyzer transmission, etc. cancel in the ratio. The exponential term in the denominator accounts for the attenuation of the substrate peak by the oxide layer of thickness.
