The article presents the first part in a series of articles that discusses the operation of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), in studying automotive coating systems. It relates that XPS, AES and SIMS are methods develop to investigate the surface composition of solid materials. It notes that improvements in the performance of these techniques has benefited industries that rely on surface chemistry.
