Auger electron spectroscopy
Auger electron spectroscopy investigates pulse distribution, pulse energy distribution and the angular distribution of electrons repelled by the Auger effect to analyze a thin layer on the surface of a body. Pulse and energy distribution of electrons can be measured by electric or magnetic fields or a combination of these, revealing a wide range of information, especially on the surface of solids and adsorbed molecules. If the sensitivity of the electron detector is increased, a microanalysis of surfaces can be performed in metallurgy, organic chemistry and biochemistry.
