## Description

Cross Section for N2 gas published as figure 2 in Sven Tougaard and Mark Greiner, "Method to correct ambient pressure XPS for the distortion caused by the gas" Applied Surface Science. (2020) First column: energy loss T in eV Second column: the cross section K(T) in the form: IMFP*K(T) in units (1/eV) where IMFP is the inelastic mean free path and K(T)dT is the probability for the electron to lose energy in the interval T to T+ dT per unit path length travelled in the gas. It can be used with the QUASES software to correct XPS taken in a N2 gas for the distortions caused by the gas. IMFP*K(T) is the form used as input in the software.
