Abstract : The principal focus of work is to develop and characterize new methods for multielement analysis. Three such methods were originally emphasized and included the development of low flow, high-efficiency torches for use in inductively coupled plasma (ICP) spectrometry, the exploration of novel microwave-induced plasmas (MIP) for elemental analysis, and the exploration of a new technique for the spectral selection of atomic or ionic emission lines, termed selective spectral line modulation (SLM).
