Abstract

In this study, we present Cu L3M45M45 Auger spectra in coincidence with Cu 2p3/2 from the oxidized surface of Cu (i.e. CuOx/Cu) and Cu 2p3/2 lines in coincidence with Auger 1G and 3F terms of Cu L3VV from Cu. Comparison of the L3VV line structures of CuOx/Cu with that of Cu reveals that the Auger line has changed to band-like in the CuOx/Cu material. The reduced mean free path of the Auger electron in coincidence with the photoelectron displays the Auger line of the CuOx surface. The asymmetric broadening of the Cu 2p3/2 lines in coincidence with 1G and 3F terms from Cu illustrates that a single-step model is essential for describing the Auger lineshape of copper.
