Determining Heavy Metal Contamination in Soil Using Spectroscopy
City:Welland, ON
School:Notre Dame College School
Abstract:A series of experiments were conducted to determine the configuration of an Atomic Emission Spectroscopic lamp to test soil for heavy metal contamination. It was thought that a hollow cathode lamp configuration (where soil is the cathode) would work best, however an arc configuration proved to be superior. Numerous contaminant metals could be detected with the exception of nickel (due to cyanogen band interference).
