For the color version of the figure, the reader is referred to the online version of the book. At least three commercial instruments were already available in the early 1990s. The primary complicating factor in GD-MS source design is the need to accommodate the ion source volume within the main vacuum chamber. Some of these impurities, including copper, probably originate in the furnace. Because samples are analyzed in solid form, laborious a… From: CdTe and Related Compounds; Physics, Defects, Hetero- and Nano-structures, Crystal Growth, Surfaces and Applications, 2010, C. Derrick QuarlesJr, ... R. Kenneth Marcus, in Encyclopedia of Spectroscopy and Spectrometry (Third Edition), 2017. Finally, advances in the use of GD ionization sources as detectors in gas and liquid chromatography separations will also be described. The GD ion source gained popularity in the past two decades on account of its stability, sensitivity and operational simplicity. Thanks to the use of a pulsed RF source, coupled with a high resolution optical spectrometer, the GD Profiler 2 provides an excellent depth resolution, allowing the fast evaluation of the coating quality. An electric potentialof several hundred volts … Glow discharge mass spectrometry (GD-MS) is one of the most comprehensive and sensitive techniques currently available for determining the composition of solid materials [1, 2].As a combined tandem source [], separation of the sputtering (sampling) and ionization processes in the GD provides a response that is, to a first approximation, independent of the sample matrix [4–6]. Les spectromètres de masse GD vous permettent de définir des nouvelles normes pour l’analyse directe d’échantillons solides, vous offrant une solution de choix pour la détermination à haut débit d’éléments traces dans des matériaux conducteurs et semi-conducteurs de haute pureté. DENKI-SEIKO[ELECTRIC FURNACE STEEL] 2004 , 75 (3) , 173-179. Direct investigations are carried out by means of GDMS (Barshick et al., 1998), whereas a comparison with TIMS once again showed that GDMS is competitive in terms of precision and accuracy for the relevant elements (Mayer et al., 2005). 8.15B affords direct analyses provided the sample is nominally flat. 8.3. Commercially built GDMS instrumentation includes single-collector, double-focusing Metallic alloy fuels consisting of UNdZr and UPuZr with uranium content of up to 81% were analyzed semiquantitatively by GDMS using the signal intensity of the analyte and taking into account the specific element sensitivity of uranium. These types of studies, which imply depth information, are important for the conception and planning of nuclear waste repositories, and GDMS is a highly versatile tool for that purpose (Betti and de las Heras, 2004). GLOW DISCHARGE MASS SPECTROMETRY (GDMS) The state-of-the-art analytical technique for the bulk elemental analysis of inorganic solid samples. Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GDMS) is one of the most powerful solid state analytical methods for the direct determination of traces, impuri-ties and depth profiling of solids.1–5 Glow discharge mass spectrometers, which are commercially available with fast and sensitive electrical ion detec- Almost all glow discharge discharge spectrometry spectrometry glow Prior art date 1990-01-10 Legal status (The legal status is an assumption and is not a legal conclusion. Tomashik, in, CdTe and Related Compounds; Physics, Defects, Hetero- and Nano-structures, Crystal Growth, Surfaces and Applications, Binary and Multinary II–VI Compounds (CdTe, CdZnTe, CdMnTe) Grown from the Melt, Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering, . The GD90 is a high resolution Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometer offering direct determination of elemental content (matrix to subtrace) in a variety of materials. GDMS :: GLOW DISCHARGE MASS SPECTROMETRY. From chemical analysis measurements by glow discharge mass spectrometry and Zeeman-corrected graphite furnace atomic absorption, the main elements detected in CZT substrates, grown in three companies (TI, II-VI, and JME) by their standard processes, the HB and VB techniques, were found to be Li, Na, Mg, Al, Si, Cl, Se, and Cu, and were attributed to the crystal growth processes more than to the raw materials, except for Se originating from Te [272]. However, some interference problems cannot be overcome in this way. A good agreement between concentration values as determined directly by GDMS and other techniques, which involve specific chemical sample preparation, was found (Betti, 2002, 2005). Pulsed glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS) was used to simultaneously quantify fluorine, strontium, lanthanum, and gadolinium in the crystals. Due to charge-up effects on the sample, the analysis of nonconducting materials is difficult by GDMS. Although impurities are introduced during growth, the Bridgman process tends to segregate them to the last-to-freeze end. Betti and coworkers detected trace and ultratraces of radioisotopes in soils, sediments, and vegetation by GDMS (Betti et al., 1996). Different arrangements were developed for this purpose and are in use, often in combination with each other, such as the following: (1) a secondary cathode is placed directly in front of the (nonconductive) sample surface (Tong and Harrison, 1993); (2) a powder sample is mixed with a conducting host matrix in an appropriate ratio (Winchester and Marcus, 1988); and (3) in a modern approach, a pulsed glow discharge source combined with time-of flight mass spectrometry is used (Ganeev et al., 2017). The relative sensitivity factor (RSF) values were obtained from a comparison with other methods such as ICP-MS and ICP-AES in analyzing uranium metal specimens of different origin. ), Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry, Methods, Encyclopedia of Spectroscopy and Spectrometry, Jacques L'. Even if one could separate both peaks with a high-resolution mass spectrometer (a resolution of M/ΔM = 7620 is required), the tailing of the huge cluster peak would prevent one from reaching low limits of detection for rhodium. Different techniques such as mixing nonconducting powdered samples with a high-purity metal powder (or high-purity graphite) or the use of a secondary cathode have therefore been applied for the analysis of electrically insulating samples by dc GDMS. Major work was done by Betti’s working group using the VG 9000 to characterize radioactive waste materials in electrically conducting and nonconducting materials, e.g., for different types of nuclear fuels, alloys containing Pu and U, cladding materials, and nuclear waste glasses. On the other hand, the direct determination of suspected low-level radiocontamination in environmental samples and hot particles is of major concern. Jacques L'. Using a pulsed glow discharge, U contents and 235U/238U isotope ratios were studied in Chernobyl microparticles (Ganeev et al., 2017). Samples ranging from 1 to 5 mm in diameter can be analysed directly without excessive machining. Depending on the specific sample material, either a direct current (dc) or radiofrequency (RF) power is used as the ion source. There is considerable evidence that copper concentrates in precipitates or inclusions of second phases (Tower et al., 1996; Sen et al., 1996). Such a system provides high transmission (>75%) and a mass resolution of up to m/Δm ≈ 10,000. One key difference between MS and optical detection techniques is that the sample material must be physically transferred out of the source. 8.15 are intended to afford great flexibility and allow the use of the same DIP for the actual sample insertion. It was thus possible to determine the neptunium concentration in sediment samples from the Irish Sea with dc-GDMS with a LOD of 80 pg g−1 (Aldave de las Heras et al., 2002). The double-focusing element GD (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bremen, Germany, introduced in 2005) combines a direct current GD ion source with the ELEMENT2. Glow discharge analytical spectro-metric techniques are based on the detection and quan-tification of sample species within the plasma. Control of purity has been described in Section 2. Tantalum and titanium are thus well suited as host matrix, because these materials significantly reduce the formation of UO+ and PuO+ species. It is also frequently applied to the characterization of nuclear samples (Betti, 1996) as well as nuclear forensics (Betti et al., 1999). The ions (wh… The maximum doping levels achievable in bulk CdTe are of some 1017 cm−3 for holes (As, P, Li) and about 1018 cm−3 for electrons (Al, I, In), very close to the deviations from stoichiometry on both Cd and Te sides. This configuration allows direct mounting of the sample in the recessed region of the 8-mm diameter copper holder (mounted to the end of the rf feedthrough of the probe); the probe can thus be inserted into the discharge cell. Plasma Sources Sci. Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, USA. Thus, for a discharge of 1 kV and 2 mA at 1 torr, the optimum cell for MS is one having 2 cm as both length and radius [199]. Finally, the clusters can also be used for quantification. Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry is intended for a wide audience of scientists, engineers and postgraduate students and will be a valuable and challenging reference work for both experienced users of the technique and newcomers alike. The plasma conditions ensure an efficient dissociation and atomic ion formation by Penning and/or electron impact ionization. Sputtered neutral particles of sample are ionized in the glow discharge plasma (“negative glow”) by Penning and/or electron impact ionization and charge exchange processes. The two designs in Fig. The Ar+ ions are accelerated by the source potential of a few hundred volts and sputter off sample constituents as atoms, ions, molecules, and clusters. The cell is typically filled with neon, but other gases can also be used. It appears that most peak intensities in this mass range are significantly decreased in the neon discharge. A low pressure is used to increase the mean free path; for a fixed electric field, a longer mean free path allows a charged particle to gain more energy before colliding with another particle. It is capable of analyzing, conducting, semi … This basic cell design has also been successfully implemented on the magnetic sector spectrometer. The precise and accurate measurement of isotope ratios is a further application of GDMS, which is of high relevance, for example, in nuclear forensics. In its simplest form, it consists of two electrodes in a cell held at low pressure (0.1–10 torr; about 1/10000th to 1/100th of atmospheric pressure). For the direct analysis of solid sample, the commercial direct current glow discharge mass spectrometer VG-9000 (VG-Elemental, UK introduced in 1985) – a double-focusing sector field mass spectrometer with Nier–Johnson geometry – has been available on the analytical market for many years but is no longer produced. The optimal working conditions for the detection of Ga and In by proposed method are 660 V discharge voltage, 3.0 mL min −1 solution flow rate and pH = 1.0 HNO 3 as supporting electrolyte. Some of these elements present special behaviors in CdTe, depending on the site they occupy in the crystalline lattice, like the amphoteric behavior of Li or Ag [275]. Ion source designs for (A) pin and (B) flat sample types in rfGD-MS. With samples less than 5 mm in diameter, the flat sample holder depicted in Fig. The surface oxides on the high-purity elements, the residual gases, and the hydrocarbon vapors from the evacuation system were identified as well as sources of contamination from infrared absorption experiments [121]. GDMS is successfully applied in both fields. However, the application of GDMS in the determination of radionuclides is limited due to its low sensitivity and limited accessibility (Hou and Roos, 2008). The difference between argon and neon is caused by ArFe+ interferences. In this paper, gallium (Ga) and indium (In) in water samples were determined by atomic emission spectrometry (AES) with solution cathode glow discharge (SCGD) as an excitation source. A second electrode means, spaced from sample by an insulating washer, is also part of the source assembly and engages with a discharge chamber into which a discharge gas is introduced. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. In its simplest form, it consists of two electrodes in a cell held at low pressure (1–10 torr). Analyte ions are extracted by electrostatic lenses and transferred through a mass analyser for eventual detection. Mainly Al, Ga, In, Cl, and I have been used as donors and Li, Cu, Ag, N, P, and As as acceptors. Moreover, another method has recently been proposed in the literature, which tries to suppress the cluster interferences by sampling from a reversed hollow cathode ion source. Atomic Spectroscopy. Miroslav Ješkovský, ... Pavel P. Povinec, in Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis: Volume 2 (Fourth Edition), 2019. A potential of several hundred volts is applied between the two electrodes. In fact, it is possibly the oldest form of MS. Electric discharges were commonly used as “natural” ion sources in the 1920s and 1930s for the early mass spectrographs [198], Much of the early analytical work in GD-MS was aimed at replacing the spark ion source (a vacuum discharge ionization source that yields broad energy spreads, an erratic ion beam and usually unreliable quantitative results). Typically, from 10 to 100 Pa of Ar is used to produce sufficient ions, which are accelerated toward the sample on the cathode surface, with energies from hundreds to thousands eV. In this article, an overview of the broad characteristics, capabilities, and analytical applications of glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS) is presented. A good agreement for plutonium oxide samples using ICP-MS and GDMS with tantalum as secondary cathode was obtained for a number of radioisotopes (De las Heras et al., 2000). L’outil idéal pour l’analyse directe de matériaux conducteurs et semi-conducteurs de haute pureté, le système peut détecter et quantifier de manière systématique presque tous les éléments présents dans un échantillon solide au niveau du ppb ou en deçà. Due to electrical charging of the sample surface, the analysis of nonconducting materials is more demanding. If attention is focused on only one, or a few impurities, more sensitive techniques such as sputter initiated resonant ion spectroscopy may be appropriate (Tower et al., 1996; Sen et al., 1996). Figure 8.15A is an expanded view of the pin-type sample holder implemented on the quadrupole instrument. GDMS is the most comprehensive and sensitive technique available for the analysis of solids. Reprinted from Jakubowski N and Stüwer D (1989) Comparison of Ar and Ne as working gases in analytical glow discharge mass spectrometry. Glow Discharge Spectrometry (GDS) is an analytical method for direct determination of the elemental composition of solid samples. Three-dimensional mathematical models of the behaviour of the different species in a dcGD in argon were used to study the influence of the dimensions of flat-cathode/hollow-anode cylindrical cells on the calculated plasma quantities. The glow discharge source is shown enlarged and worked out in more detail. The rf-powered DIP must meet several design requirements including efficient coupling of the rf power to the sample, isolation of the sputtering to the sample surface and effective shielding of potential radiated power losses. Même l’analyse élémentaire la plus sophistiquée devient plus simple avec les bons accessoires pour GD-MS. Améliorez les performances, le confort et la flexibilité grâce à des accessoires spécifiquement conçus pour votre spectromètre de masse à décharge luminescente. In general, the investigation of the diffusion mechanism of trace elements is an important aspect in the characterization of environmental processes. Thus, the sample must be transported to the cell volume through a vacuum interlock system by means of a direct insertion probe (DIP). Thin and Thick films analysis. It has found widespread applications in the determination of trace-level distributions at surfaces and within conducting and nonconducting solids or dispersed liquids (Duckworth et al., 1993; Barshick et al., 1993, 2000). Indeed, it was found that the analyte ions are characterized by a peak at high energy, whereas argon ions and cluster ions possess a peak at low energy. Data from a uranium oxide reference sample analysis (Morille, CEA, France) taken by secondary cathode GDMS gave precisions of ∼10% RSD or better (Betti, 2002). H.L. Glass, K. Strzalkowski, in Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering, 2016. This problem can partly be overcome by using a high-resolution mass spectrometer, such as a double-focusing instrument or a Fourier-transform mass spectrometer, or by using high purity gases and special purification systems to suppress these interferences. This instrument was used mainly for the determination of uranium and thorium traces in electrically conducting materials with LODs in the ng g−1 concentration range and lower with a reproducibility of about ±10% RSD (relative standard deviation). The Finnigan ELEMENT GD, a combination of a glow discharge ion source with a high resolution mass spectrometer, is the ultimate tool for the direct analysis of conductive materials. An innovative sample preparation procedure for trace and ultra-trace analysis on non-conducting powders by direct current glow discharge mass spectrometry. Technol. Other impurities probably do so as well. This is an outdated version. When the spectrometer is operated in high resolution mode, this provides a powerful technique for the analysis of all trace and ultra-trace elemental constituents of inorganic materials. The sputtering produces atoms for excitation that takes place away from the sample surface. Introduced into the plasma, it influences the signal by quenching metastable atoms and by forming oxide complexes with the analyte. The method was established as a powerful and efficient analytical tool for determination of trace elements analysis and depth profiling in bulk materials or thin films (Di Sabatino, 2014). In this respect, GDMS is in use for the detection of anthropogenic uranium (Duckworth et al., 1993) as well as other radioisotopes in soil, sediment, and vegetation samples (Betti, 1996). This ion source consists of multiple (2–4) counter (anode) electrodes in comparison to prior single counter electrode designs of this type. The non-thermal nature of the sampling process makes this an excellent technique for difficult applications. In this article, only three regions – the cathode dark space, the negative glow, and the anode region – are defined, because the Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy 1995 , 50 (1) , 13-25. The titanium specimen to be analyzed may be in the form of a disk, casting, foil, sheet, plate, extrusion or some other wrought form or shape. In the experiments presented here these ion sources have bee Community Leaders: Gary Hieftje … Author(s) Richard Payling, Delwyn Jones, Arne Bengtson.

Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometer Analyze • Detect • Measure • Control™ MASS SPECTROMETRY. Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry. Annemie Bogaerts, in Encyclopedia of Spectroscopy and Spectrometry, 1999. There is a newer version of this article Robert E. Steiner. Although sputtering and ionization occurs at a different location in different times of the instrument, matrix effects are minimized and calibration with quantification of the device is much simplified. In GDMS, an argon gas glow discharge (GD) at a pressure of 0.1–10 torr is used as an ion source. Ion sources in mass spectrometry for long-lived radionuclide analysis. Glow Discharge Optical Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry. 1 mbar. With the microfabricated glow discharge plasma in the ion source, pixel mapping of the solid samples allows a relative fast determination of the surface distribution of the studied element (Gamez and Finch, 2018; Tian et al., 2016) and a 3D distribution by using depth profiling for each pixel. Offrant une caractérisation complète des matériaux, principalement dans le domaine de la métallurgie, le système GD-MS Thermo Scientific Element GD Plus intègre une source d’ions à décharge luminescente rapide dans un spectromètre de masse à haute résolution. GDMS involves the sputtering of usually a solid sample (liquid as a dried solution) by Ar+ ions produced in gas glow discharge. GDMS has the advantage of almost entirely avoiding sample preparation, as measurements are carried out directly on the initial sample material. Glow Discharge Optical Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry. Contamination by residual acceptors like Cu, Li, P, and Na, taking mainly its origin in silica, was shown from electrical and optical measurements to occur during the CdTe Bridgman growth [67]. Our testing labs perform trace element analysis & material testing for non-organic trace elements. The analysis of nonconducting materials by dc GDMS is difficult due to charge-up effects on the sample surface. 1.1 This test method describes the analysis of titanium and its alloys by spark atomic emission spectrometry (Spark-AES) and glow discharge atomic emission spectrometry (GD-AES). The growth process is the primary area of concern. Here, the main interest is the isotopic composition of all types of declared or undeclared nuclear materials with respect to U and Pu isotopes. Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GDMS) The chemical composition of inorganic solid samples is directly analyzed using glow discharge atomization / ionization sources combined with high mass resolution analyzers (Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry or GDMS). neon instead of argon.
