Low cost solar array project: composition measurements by analytical photon catalysis. First quarterly report, November 1--December 31, 1978
Description: The object of this research is to assess the applicability of the photon catalysis technique for effecting composition analysis of silicon samples. In particular, the technique is to be evaluated as a detector for the impurities Al, Cr, Fe, Mn, Ti, V, Mo and Zr. During the first reporting period Al, Cr, Fe and Mn were detected with the photon catalysis method. The best fluorescence lines to monitor were established, and initial sensitivities to each to these elements were determined by atomic absorption calibration. In the course of these tests, vapor pressure curves for these four pure substances have also been mapped.
