Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 4)


The determinations of copper, nickel, cobalt, manganese, and magnesium in irons and steels are reported here. The analyses obtained for standard samples are compared with certificate values. Analytical precision is discussed, as are analytical time and operational complexity.
