Impact of Scattering on Axial Viewing Absorption Measurements within an Inductively Coupled Plasma

Volume 45, Number 4 (May 1991) Page 706-708

Rayson, Gary D.; Shen, Daniel Yang

The detection of atomic species generated within an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) by atomic absorption (AA) has been described with the use of axial viewing of the discharge. Briefly, those studies involved a "see-through" torch assembly which was oriented along the optical axis. That configuration was similar to that described earlier by Mermet and Trassy.
