Why opt for atomic absorption spectroscopy?

Have Made it our aim to be a strong and reliable foundation for your information and results with our Laboratory Information Management System for all frequent measurement procedures. It is not simply about a straightforward input of the measurement results and data. Clear administration and additional processing also play a central part. After all, you need all of your measurement data and information available and accessible anytime and anywhere a technological requirement which may be met with very little effort now with the LIMS. In atomic emission Spectroscopy AES in particular, accurate information acquisition is especially important. Quantitative and qualitative aspects of solid, liquid or gaseous samples are listed in this measuring process. The atoms of the sample are excited through an external energy source and therefore every individual atom emits characteristic electromagnetic radiation that is listed in a spectrum.

Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

This way, the precise composition of a sample can be examined and analysed using very high precision and accuracy. Since these are very sensitive data with significant information, a meticulous and traceable flow of data is of great significance for smooth functioning together with the measurement results of atomic emission spectroscopy. With the Support of laser light, A fire, an arc or another sort of high energy source, the atoms of the sample are all excited and moved to the plasma state. The light emitted by the plasma of the sample is focused on the entrance slit of the monochromator. The light is then spectrally decomposed and photoelectrically detected. The resulting spectrum enables reliable conclusions about quality and quantity depending on the position and intensity of the individual lines.

The common apparatus for atomic absorption spectroscopy usually include three components: A excitation source, a mono- or polychromator and a module for detection of the beams. The great benefit of atomic emission spectroscopy is the visualization of the analysis results. The investigated properties of this sample are represented optically and thus offer all important information concerning the quality and amount of the individual atoms in the sample. The clear advantages of this AES lie obviously in a really large and dynamic measuring range and the multi-element technique. Therefore, several elements can be qualitatively and quantitatively analysed in one measurement run. Additionally, the AES offers very good long-term stability for, especially large measurement collection. The principle of atomic Emission spectroscopy is mainly utilised in trace analysis and water analysis. Trace analysis is only concerned with the discovery of existing substances in very tiny quantities and their quantitative determination.
