The general theory, instrumentation and role in chemical analysis of atomic fluorescence spectroscopy is reviewed. The atomic fluorescence characteristics and analytical determination of chromium in an argon-separated air-acetylene flame, using an electrodeless discharge lamp, are described. The overlap of neon and chromium spectral lines has been utilised to produce the atomic fluorescence and atomic absorption of chromium with a neon electrodeless discharge lamp. The atomic fluorescence determination of antimony in copper-base alloys in an argon-hydrogen diffusion flame is reported. An investigation of the preparation and operation of a number of multi-element electrodeless discharge lamps has been undertaken. These lamps have been used as spectral sources for the atomic fluorescence determination of chromium, cobalt, manganese and nickel in a variety of different types of steel. A scanning technique, employing these lamps, has been developed for rapid sequential multi-element determinations by atomic fluorescence spectroscopy. A non-dispersive atomic fluorescence spectrometer has been constructed for use with the carbon filament atom reservoir and a flame cell. This has been used for the determination of mercury with the carbon filament, and zinc in soils and a variety of non-ferrous metal alloys with a flame. Instrumentation for the continuous operation of the carbon filament atom reservoir is described.
