Abstract    We have improved XPS peak shape analysis for accurate characterization of metal nanoparticles embedded in a polymer matrix. We have determined the detailed in depth distribution of Au nanoparticles of shape nanocone in polymer by the analysis of a single spectrum by taking into account the electron transport phenomena corresponding to both metal and polymer components. This means that we have made a very simple and nondestructive indirect 3D XPS imaging technique for inline characterization of bi-component surface nanostructures including metal and polymer. This is a very promising technique for inline quality control of such surface nanostructures.
