Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES)

Typical OES Results for a 304 Stainless Steel with Matching to the Industrial Specifications

How Does It Work?
When atoms of a given element are highly energized, they produce light (Optical Emissions), and each different element produces a different distinct spectrum of light. OES works by energizing material from the sample to be studied by heating it up to thousands of degrees and creating a plasma. An optical spectrometer then collects the data from the optical emissions, and analysis of the collected light allows for highly accurate determination of the percent of each element that makes up the sample.
