Abstract:

Characterization of a  samarium thin film  deposited on a stainless steel substrate using  electrodepositionwas carried out with a Thermo Scientific K-Alpha  X-ray photoelectron  spectrometer. Two types ofsamarium  electrodeposition samples were studied, one as-deposited and one heated to 700 °C in an air atmosphere. Survey scans include peaks coming from the stainless steel substrate, such as Fe and Cr. An  x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy  (XPS) survey spectrum, Sm 3d, C 1s, and O 1s narrow scans are shown. It was determined, using  XPS, that the heating process decomposed the  deposited Sm acetate to SmO.
