PREFACE

In 1989 we created a Handbook [Ref 2], in which the standard ionization spectra of 37 simple substances and compounds measured in reflection geometry were published for the first time. It swiftly became an object of great bibliographical rarity, and that is why we have decided to present an electronic version of the handbook, suitable for wide range of users, including also the Internet. The Current Handbook is revised and supplemented with new spectra for a number of substances and compounds. Ionization spectra are accompanied by information concerning the measurement conditions. This simplifies the diagnostics of solid surfaces with commercially available electron spectrometers operated in reflection geometry (we do not discuss the transmission geometry).

The electronic version of the Handbook will allow familiarisation with the Ionization Spectroscopy technique, which in a natural way supplements other experimental techniques of solid surfaces investigation. The authors will appreciate any remarks to this version of the Handbook.
