Abstract

Commercial radiofrequency-excited electrodeless discharge lamps can be run from a square-wave modulated power supply so as to give a low level of continuous emission when modulated in the frequency range 3-10 kHz. Use of a different modulation frequency and lock-in amplifier for each lamp allows multielement non-dispersive atomic-fluorescence spectrometry to be performed. Very low detection limits have been obtained for arsenic, selenium, tin and mercury. The use of low-cost electronic components in the system largely offsets the high cost of the individual excitation power supplies and tuned a.c. detectors.
