Program for TPD analysis

Updated version the program published as supporting material of the paper Analysis of temperature-programmed desorption via equilibrium thermodynamics by M. Schmid, G. S. Parkinson, and U. Diebold, ACS Phys. Chem. Au 2 , 44–62 (2022), doi: 10.1021/acsphyschemau.2c00031, opens an external URL in a new window. The program can simulate TPD spectra assuming a lattice gas of adsorbates and it can also calculate the adsorption energy distribution from an experimental TPD spectrum at saturation coverage. The zip archive also contains a list of changes and the plotly library. If this library (plotly-latest.min.js) is saved in the same directory as the html file, the local version of the library will be used, and an internet connection will not be needed to see the plot(s).

This program is also available online, opens in new window.
