The use of an ultrasonic nebulizer in conjunction with a low turbulence, argon-hydrogen-entrained air flame provides improved performance of almost two orders of magnitude as compared with a conventional pneumatic total consumption burner. Increased sensitivity results from more efficient nebulization, reduced light scattering, and lower flame background emission. An automated sample changing system is described which provides the required freedom from sample cross-contamination.
