This is part 2 of the Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry series. Part 1 described what ICP-OES is and how it works. Part 2 will be an overview and cover some of the components.
Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is a multi-element, trace-analysis technique used to measure the concentration of various elements in a variety of sample matrices. Also known as Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES), the technique is capable of measuring the majority of the elements in the Periodic Table and is currently one of the most widely used methods for elemental analysis today.Read More
