X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is among the most powerful methods to determine the surface chemical properties of carbon materials. Because heat-treated graphite oxide includes various defects, analyses of the structure by XPS help us understand the structures of various carbon materials. Thus, XPS spectra of graphene-related materials containing various functional groups and other defects on edges and in the basal plane were simulated and full width at half maximums (FWHMs) and peak… Expand
