Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES) is an analytical technique utilized to determine how much of certain elements are in a sample. The ICP-OES principle uses the fact that atoms and ions can absorb energy to move electrons from the ground state to an excited state. In ICP-OES, the source of that energy heats from an argon plasma that operates at 10,000 Kelvin. The ICP OES of Agilent 5110-SVDV can detect the elements in axial, radial, and synchronous vertical dual view.
