Spectroscopy Applications

The analysis of elemental content is critical to ensuring the quality and safety of drinking water. Regulations such as Directive (EU) 2020/2184 and ISO 17294 provides guidelines for using ICP-MS for water analysis, aiming to protect human health from the adverse effects of its contamination.

This article introduces THz Raman Spectroscopy as a new analytical tool.
