Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 1)


Quantitative spectrographic procedures have been applied to the analysis of europium oxide. Because of its relative volatility in comparison to the other rare earth elements, the total-energy and carrier-method approach had to be modified to minimize background. Some 20 elements are included in the range of 1 to 10,000 ppm. Precision has been found to be 5 to 20%.
