A technique is described that uses Auger peaks to correct pairs of ejected-electron spectra for three types of instrumental effects in a crossed-beam apparatus with an atomic cadmium target. By comparing Auger peaks that occur in autoionizing spectra taken 180°apart, it is possible to energy-align the spectra to 1 meV, to normalize their relative intensity to 2%, and to correct for different energy resolutions to within 1%.
