Homework Help: Techniques comparison

  1. Apr 13, 2006 #1

    Do you know a website which has established a comparison between all spectrometry techniques like SAAF, ICP, SAAE, ICP-MS, LA-ICP-MS etc... concerning the nature of the analysis, the concentration domain, the nature of radiation and the main principle.

    thank you very much

    Try browsing through a standard instrumental analysis text, you can also google "spectroscopy" and probably find some relevant information.

    ICP = Inductively Coupled Plasma

    SAAF = Spectrom├ętrie d'Absorption Atomique par Flamme (which is in French, of course) from http://hp.cresp.free.fr/projet/projets.htm [Broken] (au france)

    SAAE = Spectrom├ętrie d'Absorption Atomique par Electrothermie (also French)

    ICP-MS = Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometers
    See - Varian's site - http://www.varianinc.com/cgi-bin/nav?products/spectr/icpms/index&cid=IQQNOHKMFL

    LA-ICPMS = Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
