Standard Test Method for Trace Metallic Impurities in High Purity Copper by High-Mass-Resolution Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometer
|Publication Date:||1 May 2004|
|ICS Code (Copper and copper alloys):||77.120.30|
This test method covers the concentrations of trace metallic impurities in high purity (99.95 wt. % pure, or purer, with respect to metallic trace impurities) electronic grade copper.
This test method pertains to analysis by magnetic-sector glow discharge mass spectrometer (GDMS).
This test method does not include all the information needed to complete GDMS analyses. Sophisticated computer-controlled laboratory equipment, skillfully used by an experienced operator, is required to achieve the required sensitivity. This test method does cover the particular factors (for example, specimen preparation, setting of relative sensitivity factors, determination of detection limits, and the like) known by the responsible technical committee to effect the reliability of high purity copper analyses.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
