Title:
XPS study of the effects of long-term $Ar^{+}$ ion and $Ar$ cluster sputtering on the chemical degradation of hydrozincite and iron oxide
Topic:
Abstract:
Monoatomic ion guns mounted on X-ray photoelectron spectrometers are frequently used for depth profiling to determine the depth distribution of various chemical compounds, or for surface cleaning. Sputtering with single ions may cause severe damage to some materials. Hence, in this study the influence of different sputter parameters on the degradation kinetics was examined. For comparison, the potential of Ar cluster sputtering was tested with the same materials, namely hydrozincite and FeO – two representatives of corrosion products that are susceptible to degradation. Chemical damage could only be minimized by cooling or cluster sputtering within a narrow cluster energy window.
