Principle, apparatus, and measurement method of Auger electron spectroscopy have been described. Applications of this method to surface analysis of corrosion products on electronic materials, stainless steels, and electroplated Zn-Ni (13%) alloy films are also described. Advantages and limitations for Auger electron spectroscopy are pointed out. Several questions and answers for them are presented.
