Due to its toxicological effects, Cr speciation (i.e., the determination of individual Cr-species concentration) continues to receive attention. This is because trivalent Cr3+ is a micronutrient essential to life, whereas hexavalent Cr6+ is carcinogenic. And, Cr in lake waters is important because there are ~5 million lakes worldwide. We are developing a method to initially determine the total Cr concentrations in lake waters using a microplasma coupled to an optical emission spectrometer. In this paper, an answer to the question “what are the Cr-species present in lake waters” will be discussed and progress towards determination of Cr-concentrations using a microplasma will be described.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
