A new deconvolution method for Auger electron spectroscopy is presented. This method is based on a non-linear least squares minimizing routine (Levenberg-Marquardt) and global approximation using splines, solving many of the drawbacks inherent to the Van Cittert and Fourier transform based deconvolution methods. The deconvolution routine can be run on a personal computer. The application of this method goes beyond the electron spectroscopies and can be considered as a general deconvolution method.
