In­duc­tive­ly Cou­pled Plas­ma - Op­ti­cal Emis­si­on Spec­tros­co­py ICP-OES

Aqueous solutions are analyzed by means of ICP-OES. The sensitivity of the system is very high, and yet element-specific. After atomization of the solution, it enters the axial argon plasma, and the emitted light is detected by the CCD optical system, which is arranged in a Paschen-Runge setup.
