When the ample surface is irradiated by X-rays, the X-rays knock out outer electrons on the surface. 6 Wetting Wetting Wetting Reprinted with permission from Ref. [44]]. 6 eV) is equal to the sum of Ekinetic (kinetic energy of electrons escaped from samples, which can be determined by an energy analyzer) and Ebinding (binding energy of outer electrons). Ebinding can be calculated by subtracting Ekinetic from Ephoton. 4) Because the emitted photoelectrons are strongly attenuated when passing through the sample material itself, only photoelectrons of the top 0–10 nm of the sample can escape from the sample itself and become analyzed.

FTIR showed almost identical spectra on both polyurethanes. XPS did show different spectra on two lots of polyurethanes but failed to reveal the identity of the chemicals on the surface. 15). 16). Researchers have also used SIMS to investigate the protein adsorption on different materials [57,62–64]. Castner et al. 15 SIMS of Biomer® with both BBBC and DPA-EMA. (a) The positive ion SIMS spectrum for lot BSUA contains peaks for the DPA-EMA additive. Characteristic ions for PTMG (m/z = 55) and MDI (m/z = 106 and 132) are absent.

The hydrophilic surface modifications greatly reduced Escherichia coli adhesion. 3 X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), also referred to as electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis, is a surface characterization technique based on the photoelectron effect. XPS surveys the electron binding energy spectrum of a sample surface resulting in a plot of binding energy versus total electron count. Since the binding energy of electrons of different elements is different, XPS can be used to identify the different elements present on the surface and the composition ratio of each element.
