Overview of the third International Glow Discharge Spectroscopy Symposium
The conference organisers, Peter Robinson, Arne Bengtson and Petr Smid, provide an overview of the conference to introduce this JAAS themed issue.
Compressed sensing in spectroscopy for chemical analysis
An intuitive view of compressed sensing is presented with selected examples to highlight its potential impact in atomic spectrometry.
Compositional depth profiling of diamond-like carbon layers by glow discharge optical emission spectroscopy
This article describes the compositional depth profiling (CDP) of diamond-like carbon (DLC) layers by Glow Discharge-Optical Emission Spectrometry (GD-OES).
Compressed sensing spectral imaging for plasma optical emission spectroscopy
A single-pixel compressed sensing spectral imaging system is designed and implemented on plasma optical emission for the first time.
Plasma regime transition in a needle-FAPA desorption/ionization source
The needle-Flowing Atmospheric Pressure Afterglow (n-FAPA) is a miniaturized plasma device with Ambient Desorption/Ionization capabilities. It is generated in flowing He using two concentric electrodes: a stainless steel capillary tube (outer electrode), and a hypodermic needle with a bevel-cut edge (inner electrode).
Two-dimensional elemental mapping using glow discharge mass spectrometry
We present a simple modification in the design of glow discharge mass spectrometry (GD-MS) system that allows for two-dimensional (2D) elemental imaging.
Evidence for charge transfer from hydrogen molecular ions to copper atoms in a neon–hydrogen analytical glow discharge
We show initial evidence that analyte atoms can be ionized by asymmetric charge transfer (ACT) process involving molecular ions, (M2+-ACT) in analytical glow discharges.
Determination of relative sensitivity factors of elements in high purity copper by doping-melting and doping-pressed methods using glow discharge mass spectrometry
The calibration samples were prepared from high pure copper powder doped with standard solutions of graduated and defined concentration. And then a part of them was melted into bulks and another was pressed to tablets.
