Abstract : The AFOSR program on Gas Phase Spectrometry, Trace Analysis of Elements and Combustion Diatnostics at the University of Florida consists of fundamental, instrumental, methodological and applied studies of atomic and molecular emission and luminescence and atomic and molecular absorption spectrometric methods, particularly as these measurement methods apply to trace element analysis, diagnostics of plasmas, and optimization of spectrometric experimental methods of analysis. By means of such studies, new and improved selection, sensitive, precise, accurate and rapid methods of trace analysis of elements and molecules in the gas phase or convertible to the gas phase have been or are being developed and as an additional bonus valuable diagnostic methods and results for plasmas result. Special efforts have been given to rapid simultaneous or sequential multielement methods of analysis of elements, particularly as applied to the trace analysis of many elements.
