Surface chemical analysis — Auger electron spectroscopy — Repeatability and constancy of intensity scale

ISO 24236:2005 specifies a method for evaluating the constancy and repeatability of the intensity scale of Auger electron spectrometers, for general analytical purposes, using an electron gun with a beam energy of 2 keV or greater. It is only applicable to instruments that incorporate an ion gun for sputter cleaning. It is not intended to be a calibration of the intensity/energy response function. That calibration may be made by the instrument manufacturer or other organization. The present procedure provides data to evaluate and confirm the accuracy with which the intensity/energy response function remains constant with instrument usage. Guidance is given on some of the instrumental settings that may affect this constancy.
