Abstract
The inductively coupled plasma is widely used as a radiation source in analytical emission spectrometry. Because of the richness of the spectra and the line broadening, the role of the resolving power of the dispersive system is very important. Monochromators allow a flexibility in line selection and can be optimized to obtain the best experimental resolution. Considering the range of the physical line widths of analytes observed in the plasma, specifications can be given for the instrumental broadening of the monochromator. Parameters influencing the instrumental broadening will be described with an emphasis on the resultant spectral slit width. Consequences on the optimization of the signal to background ratio will be discussed.
