Depth profiling method was used to determine the composition of transition layer (TL) formed between Lu 2 O 3 and Si(100) substrate. The conduction and valence band alignments of Lu 2 O 3 with respect to Si(100) were also determined. The deconvolution of Si 2p photoelectron spectra was verified by the compositional depth profile determined by the newly developed method.
