An Experimental Study of Lithium Furnace Emission

  title={An Experimental Study of Lithium Furnace Emission},
  author={Jaroslav P. Matousek and Lloyd E. Smythe},
Atomic emission of lithium in a small graphite furnace (CRA 63) was observed using a standard atomic absorption spectrometer with simple optical modifications. Improved diagnostic techniques facilitated a study of lithium atomic emission and atomic absorption signal profiles as a function of temperature. Low levels of lithium were measured relatively free from background emission with considerably improved signal-to-noise characteristics. Analytical growth curves plotted in logarithmic… CONTINUE READING
