Background correction in atomic absorption spectrometry using high speed electronic circuitry has been developed. Electrical responses are generated from two light sources: an atomic spectral lamp and a modified Beckman hydrogen arc lamp. Repetition rate of the pulses (2.6 msec) was limited by the increasing distortion of the pulse shape. Instantaneous relationships between the various electronic components was established using a synchronizing pulse generator.
