Flame Spectroscopy is a technique that capitalizes on the phenomena of elements burned in a flame emitting light at specific wavelengths. A continuous stream of air flow through a hydrogen flame excites the elements, and the resulting emission is then detected and analyzed via a flame photometric detector. Detection is almost instantaneous: as each molecule is sampled in the flame, it reacts immediately giving off light. The burner can be tuned for maximum sensitivity for all detectable elements. There is no memory effect, even with high concentrations, and all elements can be detected simultaneously because they emit different wavelengths.
