Atomic absorption spectroscopy provides a Quantitative breakdown of individual components within a sample. By vaporizing a ready sample and exposing the vapours to light, our specialists can help you determine the concentration of one element in a material. While dozens of components can be examined with this method, only 1 single component can be measured during every atomic absorption or graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy test. As a result of this, many other chemical analysis methods may often be timelier and more cost-effective. But graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy allows for extremely low detection of trace elements within an organic or inorganic sample. Solid materials can be examined through chemical digestion prior to testing.
Element’s accredited laboratories perform testing to different ASTM and environmental criteria, in addition to internal procedures. We provide both flame and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy, based on the material type and detection limit required. We also can test for mercury in aqueous solutions using cold vapor atomic absorption. Our atomic absorption spectroscopy labs Are Across the US and Europe, allowing you fast worldwide access to our engaged specialists and distinctive assortment of services. Whether you have got a pure substance or an alloy, our nuclear absorption specialists will work with you to develop a procedure to suit your requirements.
The Atoms has been Developed by Acculturate under US Department of Energy program for in situ process control in the production of extreme UV optical coatings for 13.5 nm lithography. Atoms is a joint optical emission and atomic absorption system that is intended to track the plasma area in vacuum deposition/etching chambers, in near proximity to the surface of the substrate 3-10 mm. The technique is capable of tracking metals, alloys, compound semiconductors, non-transparent substances, very thin films <10nm, very thick coatings >50 micron and very high deposition/etching rates. With these capabilities, Atoms can overcome a number of the deficiencies of this heritage in situ process control systems used in vacuum thin film processing. Figure 2 shows the schematic of the measurement settings.
