Abstract

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy has been performed to detect trace metal elements (Ca and Mg) in aqueous solution. In order to overcome the sensitivity drawbacks in liquid sample analysis, an absorbent paper was used as the sample support in this experiment. Calibration curves were constructed by using the standard solution with variable concentration and the limit of detection was estimated for each element. Finally this system was used to analyze three types of water samples collected from different locations in Nanjing, China and the results were compared with inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy and showed good correlation.
