Pulsed RF GD OES will answer in minutes – even seconds to multiple questions such as:

  • Which elements are present in the sample?
  • At which concentration levels?
  • Is the sample homogeneous in depth?
  • Were any coatings or surface treatments applied to the sample?
  • How thick are the coatings?
  • Is there any contamination at an interface?
  • Any oxidation of the sample?
  • Any diffusion in the coatings?
