This X-ray photoelectron spectrometer uses the principles of X-ray spectroscopy to measure the elemental composition of materials.

X-ray spectroscopy is a technique that detects and measures photons, or particles of light, that have wavelengths in the X-ray portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. It’s used to help scientists understand the chemical and elemental properties of an object. There are several different X-ray spectroscopy methods that are used in many disciplines of science and technology, including archaeology, astronomy and engineering. These methods can be used independently or together to create a more complete picture of the material or object being analyzed. How X-ray spectroscopy works When an atom is unstable or is bombarded with high-energy…
