The temperature dependence of oxide decomposition on titanium surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum was discussed. Drastic changes of the titanium dioxide core x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) levels were found such that the TiO2 decomposed into suboxides at 180 °C. The analysis showed that surface oxide composition on titanium was sensitive to the temperature.
