Abstract / Description of output

Auger spectroscopy promises the means to separate initial and final state contributions to the disorder broadening of core XPS spectra in disordered alloys. Auger disorder broadening, deduced from recent ab initio results, is predicted to be greater than XPS disorder broadening for Cu50Pd50 and Ag50Pd50 alloys. Simulations are used to assess whether this effect is observable experimentally despite the greater lifetime broadening of Auger spectra. A number of cases where narrow core-core-core Auger transitions should allow clear experimental identification of this effect are identified. The prospects for determining environment-resolved Auger spectra using APECS have been investigated. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
