How does ICP AES work?

ICPAES works by the emission of photons from analytes that are brought to an excited state by the use of high-energy plasma. When the analyte is excited the electrons try to dissipate the induced energy moving to a ground state of lower energy, in doing this they emit the excess energy in the form of light.

Just so, what is ICP AES used for?

Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICPAES), also referred to as inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICPOES), is an analytical technique used for the detection of chemical elements. The plasma is a high temperature source of ionised source gas (often argon).

One may also ask, what is the difference between ICP OES and ICP AES? Atomic emission spectroscopy (AES) is often denoted Optical emission spectroscopy (OES), in particular because acronym (AES) also refer to to Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). ICP OES or ICPAES is instrumental technique, which is appropriate for determination trace elements in soil and plant samples.

Also know, how does ICP spectrometer work?

ICP Optical Emission Spectrometry Principle ICP, abbreviation for Inductively Coupled Plasma, is one method of optical emission spectrometry. To generate plasma, first, argon gas is supplied to torch coil, and high frequency electric current is applied to the work coil at the tip of the torch tube.

How is plasma generated in ICP?

An inductively coupled plasma can be generated by directing the energy of a radio frequency generator into a suitable gas, usually ICP argon. This generates enough energy to ionize more argon atoms by collision excitation. The electrons generated in the magnetic field are accelerated perpendicularly to the torch.
