Unformatted text preview: emission by self-absorption. Since these atoms generally have less
kinetic energy than the excited ones, their absorption lines are Doppler broadened to a
lesser extent, resulting in only the center of the emission line being attenuated. 8. To increase sensitivity: 9. Atomic emission depends on the analyte population in the excited state, which is very much
dependent upon flame characteristics. Atomic absorption and atomic fluorescence
measure analyte atoms in the ground state 10. Desolvation MgCl2 (aq) Volatilization MgCl2 (s) 6 MgCl2 (g) Atomization MgCl2 (g) 6 Mg (g) + Cl (g) Absorption Mg (g) 6 Mg* (g) Ionization Mg (g) 6 Mg+ (g) Complexation Mg (g) 6 MgO (g) use a higher temperature flame (acetylene/oxygen)
