The SpecMaster Digital XPS
Spectral Data-Base system and related products are the result of
15 years of planning and research by the founder. SpecMaster is designed to help scientists, engineers, problem solvers and teachers, who need reliable XPS spectral data, advanced spectral data
processing software, handbooks and charts for the development of
products and the education of students.
with 2,000+ spectra are
published as a 5 volume set of spectra handbooks
titled: "Handbooks of
Monochromatic XPS Spectra". Additional volumes are planned. Fully
annotated and labeled, on-screen, PDF versions of all 5
handbooks are being prepared. PDF Books of Vol 1A and 2A are
available. XI LLC sells spectral data processing
software, self-training movies, wall charts of useful XPS data, provides technical training,
training seminars and small accessories for XPS.
XPS International currently has more than
academic, government and industrial users including, for example: Stanford University
(USA), Intel Corporation (USA), Canon
Corporation (Japan), National Research
Institute for Metals (Japan), British Aerospace
(England) and Fraunhofer Institute
XPS International has sales representatives in
Japan, France, Spain, Korea, Italy, England, Russia and the USA,
who are serving the needs of XPS and AES scientists and
engineers in those regions of the
XPS International is currently developing
"Spectral Data Processor" (SDP) v.5.0
that will provide advanced spectral data processing for XPS and AES
spectra obtained from various XPS and AES
instruments by importing either the ISO - VAMAS format (ISO #14976) originally published by
the Martin P. Seah at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in
England or simple X-Y-Z ASCII text files from custom-made XPS and Synchrotron data systems.
This newest version of SDP will help users to process and
publish their spectra in a variety of high
quality presentation formats that are readily
imported into word processing software and various
desk-top-publishing (DTP) software.
Version 7.0 of the "Spectral Data
Processor" software that runs on Windows10, 8, 7 and XP was released
at the beginning of 2012. SDP is constantly being improved and
expanded for your convenience to process and publish your
valuable AES & XPS spectra. We, as a company, welcome your comments and suggestions about products needed by XPS and AES users worldwide.
The founder of XPS International is B.
Vincent Crist, after completing his Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry (major) and inorganic chemistry (minor), has been in the business of XPS since 1983,
when he joined Surface Science Laboratories in Mountain View,
California, USA. He
has published various papers on XPS and AES, a Handbook
series for XPS, and has been invited
to present seminars on applied and
practical aspects of XPS in various countries around the world.
The founder is a member of the American Vacuum
Society (AVS), has served as a secretary within
the International Standards Organization (ISO) technical sub-committee on
Surface Chemical Analysis (TC/201), is a
member of the Surface Analysis Society of Japan
(SASJ), is a member of the American Chemical
Society (ACS) and is a member of the E-42 section of the American
Standards for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
