Infrared Emission Spectroscopy and Its Application to Analyze Non-smooth Metallic Materials Surface

Abstract

I tried to apply the Infrared emission spectroscopy to identify the organic substances on the non-smooth or non-flat metallic surface. The organic substances like oils, fats and coating materials play an important role to enhance the lubricant property just like a processing property of steel and to protect it from corrosion. An organic substance on the flat metallic materials like a steel plate can be analyzed by the spectroscopic analysis that uses reflection method. But, the organic substances on non-flat materials like a fiber, wire rod, ball and powder must be removed and then preceded to various analyses. On the other hand, this infrared emission spectroscopy method can practice contactless analysis of the organic substances getting infrared spectral information just by heating up the target samples and references without any pre-treatment. And this emission is isotropic; therefore it can easily detect the organic substances of the non-flat surface of the metallic surface with limited influence of the surface shape of a material. This method is very simple and easy to expand in application. * Chief Researcher, D.Eng., Materials Characterization Research Lab., Advanced Technology Research Laboratories 20-1, Shintomi, Futtsu, Chiba
