Thermostated radio-frequency excited electrodeless discharge lamps as primary sources in AFS

Walters P.E. ; Smit K.J. (1981)


The performance of Cd and Zn thermostated electrodeless discharge lamps (EDL's) excited at 150 MHz radio-frequency through the inductively-coupled mode in a coil, have been studied with respect to the effect of lamp temperature, amount of material and RF power upon the source radiant output, atomic absorption, atomic fluorescence signals, spectral line width and line profile height of Cd 479.99 nm, Cd 228.8 nm, Zn 481.05 nm and Zn 213.9 nm. Although the lamps show similar behaviour to their microwave excited counterparts, they nevertheless offer several advantages that could renew the interest in EDL's as primary excitation sources in analytical spectroscopy. © 1981.
