CAI-K ICP Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP AES)

Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry is an analytical technique used for the determination of approximately 70 elements in a variety of matrices. It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses plasma source to dissociate the sample into its constituent atoms or ions, exciting them to a higher energy level. They return to their ground state by emitting photons of a characteristic wavelength depending on the element present. This light is recorded by an optical spectrometer. When calibrated against standards the technique provides a quantitative analysis of the original sample. All kinds of dissolved samples can be analyzed, varying from solutions containing high salt concentrations to diluted acids. A typical ICP-AES consists of a sample introduction system, ICP torch and gas supply, Radio Frequency generator (RF), spectrometer, detector and data collection unit.
