Atomic and Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES)

Optical emission spectroscopy (OES) or atomic emission spectroscopy (AES) are an important tool for fast and accurate elemental analysis of metals. Optical emission spectroscopy provides a non-evasive probe to investigate atoms, ions and molecules within a plasma. It can provide information about properties, such as (excited state) species densities, electron-atom, atom-atom and ion-atom collisional effects, energy distribution of species, charge transfer between plasma constituents, and electric and magnetic fields to name a few.
