A consortium of institutions including Deakin University, LaTrobe University, RMIT, Monash University, Swinburne University, CSIRO, and Quality Heat Technologies Pty. Ltd., are purchasing a Leco GDS-850A glow-discharge optical emission spectrometer (GD-OES). This instrument, to be installed in Spring 2000, will have the ability to perform elemental depth profiling on a wide range of materials. The glow-discharge is produced in the sample by argon sputtering, and the spectral analysis is performed by optical spectroscopy. The optical spectrum yields quantitative elemental concentrations, and the sputter rate produces quantitative data as a function of depth into the sample. This technique, the first of its kind in Australia, is of particular interest to those working on metals, ceramics, glasses, coatings, semi-conductors, and multi-layers. We present here some examples of GD-OES analysis on steel and glass
