Self-Absorption in Flame Emission Spectroscopy

Flame emission is subject to the same types of chemical interferences as atomic absorption. These interferences are minimized by adjusting the flameā€™s composition and adding protecting agents, releasing agents, or ionization suppressors. An additional chemical interference results from self-absorption. Because … Continue reading

Background Corrections in Emission Spectroscopy

The most important spectral interference in emission spectroscopy is broad, background emission from the flame or plasma, and emission bands from molecular species. This background emission is particularly severe for flames because the temperature is insufficient to break down refractory … Continue reading
