The reason for electrothermal atomizer to be more sensitive as compared to the flame atomizer needs to be explained. Concept introduction: Spectral lines are lines which help in identifying the atoms and molecules. These are a result of absorption or emission of light in a comparatively narrower frequency range as compared to the frequencies nearby. Atomization refers to the separation of substance particles into separate molecules because of high temperature treatment and breaking of these molecules into atoms. Flame atomizer and discrete atomizer are two types of atomizers.
