Atomic spectrometry of occupational health samples.
University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio, Terminal Progress Report 1982 Sep; :1-8
Computer controlled rapid scanning and slew scanning spectrometry for applications in trace elemental analysis were developed and tested. A study was made of the power transfer efficiency for microwave induced plasmas, an instrument was developed for the sequential determination of trace element constituents, a microwave induced plasma emission rapid scanning spectrometer was explored for its abilities as a chromatographic detector, high temperature argon and helium plasmas were used as stable sources for emission spectroscopy, modifications of already existing equipment were undertaken which eliminated the need for external tuners and solved heating and tuning problems associated with various matching devices, an atomic spectrometric system was developed for trace element analysis of microvolume samples, and a new method for the determination of lead (7439921) in aqueous samples was developed.
