Identifying background radiation sources in flame photometry

Sources of background interferences are those that emit either light or electronic interference.

These are usually cancelled out from the collected signal source via calibration of a blank, or via the use of grounding to eliminate the stray electrons present in circuitry during voltage measurement.

Types of interference that affect the light emitted from the sample could be atmospheric effects, background radiation, entropy-based random emissions and also stray light sources.
