I require information on how an atomic emission spectrometer determines an 
element, quantitatively, based on that element's ability to emit light.
I would like to know about the design  features, instrumental techniques, and 
the role of calibration curves or where I could find this information. Also any 
common uses for the instrument would be helpful.
