Open-access XPS Database exceeds 1600 spectra
La Trobe University’s open-access XPS reference library, XPSSurfA, has now exceeded 1600 reference spectra within 120 datasets.
Unveiled by researchers at La Trobe University’s Centre for Materials and Surface Science (CMSS) less than a year ago, the open-access online database of XPS spectra, providing a global reference point of in-depth materials analysis to researchers from around the world.
The database holds XPS information on a range of materials from pure metals to polymers, to compounds and oxides to exotic materials. The database is ever growing and evolving being filled with new data straight from CMSS’s Kratos Analytical AXIS Nova instrument.
All XPSSurfA records and data files in the database are available via Open Access under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial (CC BY-NC) 4.0 International License. This means any data file in the database can be downloaded to view, reuse, compare and publish alongside the user’s own research with appropriate attribution.
The XPSSurfA database is an initiative led by CMSS with the support of the NCRIS-funded organisations, the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) and the Nectar Cloud.
