Atomic emission spectroscopy or AES is a procedure of analyzing chemicals that employs the intensity of light from a plasma, flame, arc or spark at a definite wavelength to calculate the quantitative presence of an element in a particular sample. The atomic spectral line wavelength identifies the element and the intensity of light is proportional [...]
