Amir, The 142 nm surfur line is not on your IRIS 1000 unit (it is available on the XUV unit from Thermo though). Like Bryan said, I am not sure moving from 182 nm to 142 nm will help you that much. Shen LuanThermo Electron

while the one at 182.034 does not. We use 142.503, but I don't think
that will help Amir very much.
