Abstract

High-temperature vaporization-ablation sources provide vapor and/or dry aerosol that can be transported to an analytical observation volume where revaporization of particulates and atomization/ionization/excitation of the vapor can take place. In the previous three decades, graphite-arc vaporization, electrothermal vaporization and laser ablation techniques have been combined with flame and inductively coupled plasma sources in the author's laboratories. These works constitute the basis for a more general review and evaluation of the concepts and results documented in related literature.
