Permissible Value(s)ValueValue Meaning
 Attenuated Total ReflectanceAttenuated total reflectance (ATR) is a sampling technique used in conjunction with infrared spectroscopy which enables samples to be examined directly in the solid or liquid state without further preparation.
 EmissionThe Emission value indicates emission spectroscpy, which examines the wavelengths emitted by atoms or molecules during their transition from an excited state to a lower energy state.
 LIBSLIBS (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) uses a highly energetic laser pulse as its excitation source to produce emission spectra.
 RamanThe Raman value indicates Raman spectroscopy, which determines information about a material by studying the Raman scattering of monochromatic light off the material.
 ReflectanceThe Reflectance value indicates reflectance spectroscopy, the study of light as a function of wavelength that has been reflected or scattered from a material.
 TransmissionThe Transmission value indicates transmission spectroscopy, the study of light as a function of wavelength that has been transmitted through a material.
 X-Ray DiffractionThe X-Ray Diffraction value indicates x-ray diffraction spectroscopy, which studies the diffraction patterns of x-rays scattered off a material.
 X-Ray FluorescenceThe X-Ray Fluorescence value indicates x-ray flourescence spectroscopy, which examines the emission of x-rays from a material previously bombarded with high energy x-rays or gamma rays.
