Editor’s pick paper on Fundamentals of thin film depth profiling by glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy
The authors published a paper entitled “Fundamentals of thin film depth profiling by glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy” that was awarded the editor pick badge. The publication is about glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy (GDOES), which is a useful technique for qualitative plasma characterization. Usages for the determination of surface composition and depth profiling of solid materials are reviewed and analyzed, stressing the contribution of early authors, and highlighting the advantages as well as drawbacks. The recent applications of this technique for depth profiling of various materials are presented, and the directions for constructing a laboratory-scale device are provided.
