Carter, G, Armour, DG, Bailey, Paul and Kiriakidis, G (1985) The use of the exponential tempering function in multiple order desorption analysis. Vacuum, 35 (1). pp. 39-43. ISSN 0042-207X

Analysis is presented of desorption rate-temperature profiles under multiple order reaction kinetics processes and with application of the exponential tempering schedule defined by the equation dT/dt= n T. Three methods of determining the kinetic parameters for discrete activation energy for desorption situations are discussed and the application of the technique for evaluation of population distribution in continuously distributed activation energy situations is outlined.
