Atomic absorption spectroscopy, Photoabsorption, Mercury -- Spectra
A new detector for atomic spectroscopy was developed based on the photoacoustic principle. A simple system was constructed based on this detector and applied to the trace analysis of mercury. The detection limit was found to be about 0.2 ug/1 of mercury with a one milliliter sample.
