Atomic emission spectroscopy is a technique for chemical analysis that quantifies the concentration of an element in a sample by measuring the intensity of light produced from a flame, plasma, arc, or spark at a certain wavelength.
While the intensity of the emitted light is inversely proportional to the number of atoms in the element, the wavelength of the atomic spectral line in the emission spectrum identifies the element. There are several ways to stimulate the sample.
Using a tiny loop of wire, often made of platinum, the sample of a material is introduced into the flame as a gas, sprayed solution, or directly. The solvent is evaporated by the flame’s heat, which also dissolves intramolecular bonds to liberate free atoms.
The atoms are also energized by the heat energy into excited electronic states, which when they return to the ground electronic state, generate light. A grating or prism disperses the light that each element emits at a certain wavelength, which is then picked up by the spectrometer.
The Global Atomic emission spectrometer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A new Atomic emission spectrometer launched from Agilent Technologies will enable labs to process more samples and increase income. The new Agilent 4210 microwave plasma-atomic emission spectrometer runs on air instead of combustible gas, which makes it safer and more affordable to operate. This feature is exclusive to Agilent MP-AES systems.
For laboratories in the food, agriculture, petrochemical, environmental, and mining industries, this is especially crucial. The 4210 has a sophisticated valve system, an inert torch, a humidifier, a temperature-controlled spray chamber, a multimode sample-introduction system, and updated diagnostics software. These features all increase the instrument’s analytical performance, sample throughput, and user friendliness.
Additionally, remote elemental analysis is possible thanks to new automation software. Applications like on-site process stream monitoring and environmental monitoring are made possible by this flexibility. Our automated river water monitoring system, which historically relied on colorimetric and electrochemistry analyzers, will incorporate the MP-AES.
