Abstract

We propose a new approach for analysis of Auger electron spectra (AES) of polymers by density functional theory (DFT) calculations with the Slater’s transition-state concept. Simulated AES and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS) of four polymers [(CH2CH2)(n) (PE), (CH2CH(CH3))(n) (PP), (CH2CH(OCH3))(n) (PVME), and (CH2CH(COCH3))(n) (PVMK)] by DFT calculations using model dimers are in a good accordance with the experimental ones. The experimental AES of the polymers can be classified in each range of ls-2p2p, 1s-2s2p, and 1s-2s2s transitions for CKVV and OKVV spectra, and in individual contributions of the functional groups from the theoretical analysis.
