I need to find the first 2 orders of the taylor series on the expression below. sqrt(Psi_s0 + Phi_t*exp((Psi_s0-2*Phi_F - V_SB)/Phi_t)) where Phi_t*exp((Psi_s0-2*Phi_F - V_SB)/Phi_t) is defined as Xi, and the taylor series is around Xi = 0.

Yes, thank you, that is correct.

The variable we are differentiating with respect to is Xi, which is the second term under the square root.
I'll try to elaborate. We are setting Then we are solving the series around So I actually want expand an equation of the form for , and I only need the first two terms, fortunately.
