Recent trends in X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) developments, focusing on applications concerned with condensed matters such as solids, are presented. The information also include accurate theoretical description of fundamental phenomena associated with X-ray photoemission from solids, including effects of electron correlation and atomic environment on electron binding energies and Auger transition energies in the atomic core. Progress and trends in XPS techniques are overviewed in fields of surface chemical analysis such as non-destructive concentration depth profiling and 3D imaging. Applications of XPS focusing on current status and perspectives are also surveyed regarding practically important fields such as quantitative surface chemical analysis. Trends in some of these XPS applications indicate an increasing use in life and biological sciences.
