Glow Discharge - Optical Emission Spectroscopy

The HORIBA GD-Profiler 2 Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometer (GD-OES) allows elemental analysis to be performed on metallic and ceramic conducting and non-conducting materials without the need to change  the excitation source. It allows compositional depth profiling of surfaces and surface layers of both conducting and non-conducting materials.

Measured properties:

  • Combined elemental analysis and depth profiling
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis
  • High sensitivity to all elements (including gaseous elements)
  • Film thickness up to 150μm with 1nm resolution
  • Compositional depth profiling

HORIBA GD-profiler

Excellent resolution up to 1nm

This is the only glow discharge optical emission spectrometer in Scotland
