Relationship between Detection Limits and Energy Quantities in Atomic Emission Spectrometry

Volume 48, Number 5 (May 1994) Page 587-591

Yngström, Sten

A relationship involving detection limits of ionic lines in an inductively coupled plasma experiment is shown to derive from principles applied in determining atomic transition probabilities from intensity measurements in arc experiments. A new theory of spectral line intensity has been previously shown to be supported by the arc experiments and is now shown to be consistent with the results of the detection limit ICP experiment.
