  author={Dirk Ferdinand L{\"u}tzenkirchen-Hecht},
XPS data have been obtained from silver oxide (Ag2O) thin films which were prepared by the anodic oxidation of sputter cleaned silver metal in alkaline solution (1M NaOH). The electrochemical oxidation was performed under a protecting noble gas atmosphere in a separate chamber flanged to the UHV spectrometer, so that any contact with laboratory air was avoided. Ex-situ x-ray diffraction revealed the polycrystalline structure of the oxides without any preferred orientation. The following spectra… CONTINUE READING
