Emission characteristics of laser ablation-hollow cathode glow discharge spectral source

Stefan Karatodorov / Valentin Mihailov / Margarita Grozeva
Published Online: 2014-11-17 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/chem-2015-0026


The emission characteristics of a scheme combining laser ablation as sample introduction source and hollow cathode discharge as excitation source are presented. The spatial separation of the sample material introduction by laser ablation and hollow cathode excitation is achieved by optimizing the gas pressure and the sample-cathode gap length. At these conditions the discharge current is maximized to enhance the analytical lines intensity.
