Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

Equipment



Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
Thermofisher
M Series AA spectrometer

Atomic-absorption (AA) spectroscopy uses the absorption of light to measure the concentration of gas-phase atoms. Since samples are usually liquids or solids, the analyte atoms or ions must be vaporized in a flame or graphite furnace.
