XPS basic data

Synchrotron users can find cross section and asymmetry parameter data in these papers
(Future versions of XPS MultiQuant may include some of these data.)
Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables I. M. Band, Yu. I. Kharitonov and M. B. Trzhaskovskaya:
Photoionization cross sections and photoelectron angular distributions for x-ray line energies in the range 0.132–4.509 keV targets: 1 ≤ Z ≤ 100
Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables 23, (1979) 443-505.
Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables J. J. Yeh and I. Lindau:
Atomic subshell photoionization cross sections and asymmetry parameters: 1 ≤ Z ≤ 103
Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables 32, (1985) 1-155.
