The article presents information on the 2004 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry, which will be held at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from January 5th to 10th, 2004. The topic for the 13th biennial, Winter Conference is the scope of Plasma Spectrochemistry in the 21st Century. More than 600 scientists are expected, and over 300 papers on modern plasma spectrochemistry will be presented. Some of the topics, which will be up for discussion are: the elemental speciation, speciation sampling and sample preparation; glow discharge atomic and mass spectrometry; laser ablation and breakdown spectrometry.

    Over the past twenty years or so, glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS) has become the industry standard for the analysis of trace elements in metals and semiconductors. A review of its history is followed by a picture of the present situation and a look to where the future may lie....

  • Studies of a-Si:H growth mechanism by Rutherford recoil measurement of H and D in films prepared from SiH4-D2 and SiD4-H2. Yatsurugi, Yoshifumi; Kuboi, Osamu; Hashimoto, Masanori; Nagai, Hisao; Aratani, Michi; Yanokura, Minoru; Kohno, Isao; Nozaki, Tadashi // Applied Physics Letters;1984, Vol. 44 Issue 2, p246 

    a-Si:H films were prepared by rf glow discharge in SiH4-D2 or SiD4-H2 mixtures and analyzed for H and D by Rutherford forward recoil measurement in order to study its growth mechanism. In a low power rf discharge, more H atoms than D atoms were incorporated in the a-Si:H film even in the SiH4(1...

    It was found that the surface energy of films of the fluoropolymer F-2M (poly(vinylidene fluoride)) is substantially increased by low-frequency glow discharge treatment. The modification effect is retained for a long time and is presumably due to the formation of oxygenated groups on the polymer...
