OPERATING PRINCIPLE The technique makes use of absorption spectrometry to assess the concentration of an analyte in a sample. It relies therefore heavily on Beer-Lambert law. In short, the electrons of the atoms in the atomizer can be promoted to higher orbital's for an instant by absorbing a set

quantity of energy (i.e. light of a given wavelength). This amount of energy (or wavelength) is specific to a particular electron transition in a particular element, and in general, each wavelength corresponds to only one element. This gives the technique its elemental selectivity. As the quantity of energy (the power) put into the flame is

element being measured. TECHNIQUES In order to analyze a sample for its atomic constituents, it has to be atomized. The sample should then be illuminated by light. The light transmitted is finally measured by a detector. In order to reduce the effect of emission from the atomizer (e.g. the black body radiation) or the environment, a spectrometer is normally used between the atomizer and the detector. The technique typically makes use of a flame to atomize the sample,[3] but other atomizers such as a graphite furnace[4] or plasmas, primarily inductively coupled plasmas, are also used.[5]

light passes through this flame at its longest axis (the lateral axis) and hits a detector.

High precision of measurement: Gas path system is

equipped with precision pressure stabilizing and current stabilizing devices to reach stable flame and low noise.

Analysis of liquids A liquid sample is normally turned into an atomic gas in three steps: 1.Desolvation - the liquid solvent is evaporated, and the dry sample remains 2.Vaporization - the solid sample vaporises to a gas 3.Atomization - the compounds making up the sample are broken into free atoms.

Specially designed fine light beam passes through the flame to ensure a high precision analytical test and low characteristic concentration. •
