Abstract
A calibration model was created to illustrate the detection capabilities of laser ablation molecular isotopic spectroscopy (LAMIS) discrimination in isotopic analysis. The sample set contained boric acid pellets that varied in isotopic concentrations of 10B and 11B. Each sample set was interrogated with a Q-switched Nd:YAG ablation laser operating at 532 nm. A minimum of four band heads of the β system B2∑ → Χ2∑transitions were identified and verified with previous literature on BO molecular emission lines. Isotopic shifts were observed in the spectra for each transition and used as the predictors in the calibration model. The spectra along with their respective 10/11B isotopic ratios were analyzed using Partial Least Squares Regression (PLSR). An IUPAC novel approach for determining a multivariate Limit of Detection (LOD) interval was used to predict the detection of the desired isotopic ratios. The predicted multivariate LOD is dependent on the variation of the instrumental signal and other composites in the calibration model space.
