Quantitative analysis of trace metal ions in ice using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy J.O. Caceres, J. Tornero Lopez, A. Gonzalez Urena, H.H. Telle Liquids EG&G 1461/88 Not Known
Laser: Nd:YAG
Gate Delay: 4.000us
Gate Width: 5.000us
Some experiments also carried out using a Q-Switched CO2 laser. Liquid sample analysis was simplified by freezing the samples and analysing the solid.
