GD-OES measurement

Glow Discharge-Optical Emission Spectroscopy (GD-OES) is a quantitative technique used to profile the elemental composition of a sample in depth.

The technique is mainly used for quick depth profiling of thick materials, thus providing their elemental composition as a depth profile. It is commonly used to analyze inorganic materials and coatings, such as metal, glass, and ceramic coatings or multilayer stacks.
