Limits to Sensitivity in Laser Enhanced Ionization.
Travis, J. C.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n11 p909-14 Nov 1982
Laser enhanced ionization (LEI) occurs when a tunable dye laser is used to excite a specific atomic population in a flame. Explores the origin of LEI's high sensitivity and identifies possible avenues to higher sensitivity by describing instrument used and experimental procedures and discussing ion formation/detection.
