Join our webinar on Curve Fitting in XPS Webinar: Good Practices and Tools for Avoiding Mistakes presented by Dr. Kateryna Artyushkova, Senior Staff Scientist.
Curve fitting has been widely used for extracting chemical information from the overlapping features in high-resolution XPS spectra. It is challenging to develop a chemically and physically meaningful approach to curve fitting. In this webinar we will discuss the theory behind XPS curve fitting, demonstrate practical approaches for analyzing XPS core regions and what common mistakes should be avoided when curve fitting. Topics addressed will include choosing appropriate background, handling overlapping peaks, fitting transition metal spectra, appropriately constraining spin–orbit split peak ratios and energy separation, and others.
