Laser: Nd:YAG
Gate Delay: 0.150us
Gate Width: 0.500us
Analysis done in 0.8L/min argon. Calibration performed using synthetic glasses and Li mineral samples. Good agreement obtained compared to results from wet chemistry and ion-microprobe
Element Detection Limit (ppm) Wavelength (nm) Other Wavelengths (nm) Calibration Method Calibration Range (ppm) Notes
Li 5.0000 (Stated) 670.7060 N/A Univariate Calibration 20.0000-185400.0000 [There is no Li peak in the NIST tables at 670.706nm. Seems most likely the peaks 670.776/670.791nm are implied]. Otherwise, excellent results obtained from calibration when applied to Li rich minerals (4-8% Li) and melt inclusions.
