Progress in quantitative surface analysis is hampered by the lack of experimental procedure including spectrometer calibration, sample preparation, and general experimental setting-up. Two methods for spectrometer alignment are compared: the linearization method and the elastic peak test. Experimental spectra are presented, which can be considered as stringent reference data to check the instrument response and the analyser transmission at low energies.
