    Sorry, but question doesn't make much sense as asked.

    The closest I can think of are spark and arc atomic emission spectroscopy.

    I tried with laser diode. I'd like to use microwave tube in ultra low level but it need to calculate some value but is difficult.

    So, I'm thinking if I put on metal some radioactive too soft. If you know some material which it becomes radioactive when I powered it.
