This short video provides viewers with an overview and short summary of Flame Photometry Standards.
Flame Photometry is particularly suitable for Alkali and Alkaline Earth metals by exploiting the fact, that these metals are excited at a lower temperature than most other metals. When these excited metals return to their normal state, they emit electromagnetic radiation. The wavelengths of this radiation are easily isolated by optical filters and converted to an electrical signal, the magnitude of which is a direct function of the concentration of a particular metal in a sample, standard or control material. The spectra produced are simple, free of interference and well suited to quantifiable measurement.
