It deals with a wet chemical analytical method whereby the solution of the sample in form of an aerosol is inserted in a plasma flambeau. Latter is dependent on the element and the concentration and can be utilized for qualitative and quantitative analysis after calibration.
Linear signals over great ranges of concentrations as well as the possibility of a quasi-simultaneous analysis of all interesting components are advantageous.
For many components the sensitivity is comparable with graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry one’s. Consequently even the determination of traces gets possible.
