Summary Glow-Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry (GD-OES) is a powerful technique for the rapid analysis of elements in a solid surface as a function of depth. DC-GD-OES allows depth profiling on electrically conductive surfaces only, and has proven to be difficult for the analysis of insulating layers, such as oxides. However, the technique of radio-frequency (RF) GD-OES has the advantage of being able to depth profile through multiple layers, both conducting and insulating. In this work, a LECO GDS- 850A spectrometer was calibrated for aluminium, oxygen, and other elements, with the RF source installed. A quantitative depth profile for a sample of tempered aluminium alloy 7475 is presented and compared with earlier work[1,2].
