A simple, relatively low-cost direct injection high-efficiency nebulizer (DIHEN) is introduced for argon inductively coupled plasma (Ar ICP) spectrometry. The DIHEN may be operated at solution uptake rates of 1-100 microL/min. Analytical performance indexes for the DIHEN and fundamental characteristics of the aerosol produced are obtained using an ICP mass spectrometer (ICPMS) and a two-dimensional phase Doppler particle analyzer (2D PDPA), respectively. Results are compared to those obtained… CONTINUE READING
