Plasma spray–deposited metal films are used in many industrial applications. This study shows how high resolution terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) can be used to analyze and characterize such films.
Although ICP-OES and ICP-MS are often considered mature techniques,
probing the mechanisms involved can lead to more accurate results, and in
some cases, cast doubt on accepted explanations. John Olesik shares some
surprises he has encountered, in this first part of a two-part interview series.
