A Versatile Electronic Computer for Photoelectric Spectrochemical Analysis

Volume 18, Number 1 (Jan. 1964) Page 21-25

Weekley, R.E.; Norris, J.A.

An electronic system has been designed with which it is possible to make dynamic background corrections by modifying existing commercial direct-reading equipment. The resulting linear curves make practical the use of simple electronic analog computation equipment to automatically calculate analytical values. The design and use of a versatile computer to carry out this function is described. Its application to the spectrochemical analysis of clamshells for Ba, Mn, Na, and Sr is presented.
