Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 2)


Emission spectrographers have used many different methods to get a homogeneous sample into the analytical gap [1-9], Many other works could be cited, but these should suffice to show the great number of techniques that are or have been used for this purpose.
