When a matter is continually supplied with energy, its temperature increases and it goes from the solid phase through the liquid phase to the gaseous state. If energy is still supplied, the atomic shell breaks down and charged particles are created (negatively charged electrons and positively charged ions. This mixture is called plasma or the "fourth state of matter". Avantes has the ability to support synchronous measurement accross multiple spectrometer channels to acquire the spectrum of plasma at the same time every time. Software stitches spectra together. Please find below some of our Plasma set ups.
