Comparing several atomic spectrometric methods to the super stars: special emphasis on laser induced breakdown spectrometry, LIBS, a future super star
The “super stars” of analytical atomic spectrometry are electrothermal atomization-atomic absorption spectrometry (ETA-AAS), inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) andExpand
Trace Determination of Mercury: A Review
Abstract Methods used for trace (sub-ppm) detection of mercury are reviewed. Included are spectrometric methods such as atomic absorption, fluorescence, emission, and mass spectrometry;Expand
Raman spectroscopy in bioanalysis.
Improvements in instrument design are reviewed and several applications of Raman spectroscopy to diagnosis in biology, chemistry and medicine are discussed. Expand
Species Differentiation of a Diverse Suite of Bacillus Spores by Mass Spectrometry-Based Protein Profiling
The ability to visualize higher-molecular-mass coat proteins as well as smaller proteins (<10 kDa) with MALDI-TOFMS profiling is critical for the complete and effective species differentiation of the Bacillus genus. Expand
Insights into Linear and Rank Correlation for Material Identification in Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy and other Spectral Techniques
Through computer simulations, it was demonstrated that a linear correlation is a more suitable technique for material identification than a rank correlation due to its better stability toward noise and better ability to detect small systematic variations in line intensities. Expand
Zinc analysis in human skin by laser induced-breakdown spectroscopy.
The results indicated that Zn was absorbed through the skin and the concentration decreased exponentially with depth into the skin, indicating that LIBS is a useful tool for trace elemental analysis in human skin. Expand
Curve of growth methodology applied to laser-induced plasma emission spectroscopy
Abstract The curve-of-growth (COG) method was applied to a laser-induced plasma. The plasma was produced by a Nd:YAG laser on the surface of steel samples containing 0.007–1.3% of Cr. The emissionExpand
Comparative study of two standard-free approaches in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy as applied to the quantitative analysis of aluminum alloy standards under vacuum conditions
Two standard free approaches to the quantitative analysis of aluminum alloys by laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) are compared—the calibration-free LIBS (CF-LIBS) approach and the MonteExpand
