Optical Emmissions Spectroscopy (OES)

OES is an analytical technique commonly used for the detection of trace metals. It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses the inductively coupled plasma to produce excited atoms and ions that emit electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths characteristic of a particular element.  The intensity of this emission indicates the concentration of the element within the sample.


Applications of OES Instruments

The OES method can be used for material testing in production, component identification in chemical and petrochemical plants, material failure analysis, weld seam analysis, and the rapid determination of metal alloys when buying, selling or blending scrap metal.

‚ÄčAdvantages of OES Method+  great for detection of trace metals+  provides fast identification+  results are reliable Disadvantages of OES Method-   sparc or arc conditions not typically well controlled-   analysis in some implentations is only qualitative-   spectral interference is possible
