A method is described for analyzing implanted semiconductors in which the chemical state of the substrate and impurity atoms is determined from the X-ray photoelectronic spectrum of a narrow surface layer. For the As /Si system, measurements on the As (3d) and Si(2p) lines have established the impurity profile and indicated residual damage after anneal of high dose implants.
