The term applied-emission spectrography undoubtedly means different things to different people, depending upon their methods and goals. To the bulk of the membership of the local sections of APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY who founded the modest bulletin of APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY (which has grown to the present very respectable Journal of the same name since 1946), the term applied spectroscopy meant a relatively new and useful instrumental method of chemical analysis employing emission spectra. Its novelty lay in its potential for speed, ability to analyze very small amounts of material and principally to detect and determine metallic constituents down to concentrations hitherto impossible in the case of most elements.
