There are five key types of spectrophotometer available—UV-Vis, Vis, atomic absorption, fluorescence, and infrared—here's how to choose between them
Learn more about fast, accurate determination of total mercury in environmental samples
Learn more about the differences between Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) and Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES)
Thanks to a large range of accessories, the novAA® 800 can be optimized to meet individual requirements such as sample throughput, precision, and ease of use
The two principal forms of atomic spectroscopy are based on emission and absorption
In this webinar, experts Georg Debus and Nikolay Ivanov of Lumex Instruments discuss the advantages of atomic absorption spectroscopy with Zeeman background correction (ZAAS) for the analysis of mercury in complex samples.
Atomic absorption (AA) has been known since the 19th century, but it was not until the 1950s, thanks to efforts by Alan Walsh at Australia’s CSIRO research center, that use of AA spectrometers became routine for metals analysis.
The oxidant/fuel combinations used in flame atomic absorption spectroscopy are commonly air/acetylene gas or nitrous-oxide/acetylene gas. Acetylene gas is highly ?ammable and can be potentially explosive.
