Types of plasma sources:
The three types of plasma sources and the sources for their power are as given below.
Source of power
The inductively coupled plasma (ICP)
The direct current plasma (DCP)
The microwave induced plasma (MIP)
In a frit nebulizer the sample solution is pumped to a glass frit membrane, consisting of a porous coral such as synthetic material. The argon gas passes through the membrane and converts the sample into an aerosol spray. This is then directed into the plasma.
