Volatilization Phenomena and Chemical Reactions

  • P. W. J. M. Boumans


In § I.I we introduced the term ‘sample excitation’ to denote the group of processes that determine the radiation output of the source for a given sample. In theory, the aggregate of processes can be treated in separate steps; in practice, the processes take place jointly, however, and observed intensities therefore reflect overall effects. Only by means of ingenious experiments are we able to decide upon the roles played by the individual steps. In general we attempt to distinguish between the part played by
  1. 1

    The thermal processes in the plasma (dissociation, ionization, excitation).

  2. 2

    The transport mechanism in the plasma.

  3. 3

    The volatilization phenomena and the chemical reactions in the electrode cavity.
