This book provides a systematic introduction to the physics behind measurements on plasmas. It develops from first principles the concepts needed to plan, execute, and interpret plasma diagnostics. The book is therefore accessible to graduate students and professionals with little specific plasma physics background, but is also a valuable reference for seasoned plasma physicists. Most of the examples are taken from laboratory plasma research, but the focus on principles makes the treatment useful to all experimental and theoretical plasma physicists, including those interested in space and astrophysical applications. This second edition is thoroughly revised and updated, with new sections and chapters covering recent developments in the field. Specific areas of added coverage include neutral-beam-based diagnostics, flow measurement with mach probes, equilibrium of strongly shaped plasmas and fusion product diagnostics.

From the reviews:'[This excellent source of information on the fundamentals, instrumentation, methodologies, and applications of ICP-MS is...welcomed by this scientist and fills a well-defined need.' -- James D. Winefordner, Dept. of Chemistry, University of Florida, Gainesville 'The most comprehensive recent treatise on ICP-MS' -- Velmer A. Fassel, Distinguished Professor of Science and Humanities, Professor of Chemistry- Emeritus, Iowa State UniversityFrom the reviews of the editor's earlier ICP work, Inductively Coupled Plasmas in Analytical Spectrometry, 2nd Ed.:'If readers could have only one book on ICP spectrometry, this should be it....the book can serve both as a stand-alone source of information on ICP-AES and ICP-MS or as an excellent guide to more detailed literature.' -- Spectroscopy'I highly recommend this deserves a place in every laboratory in which ICP is used for elementary analysis.' - Journal of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry'...could have been titled 'Everything you wanted to know about the ICP.'...we affectionately refer to it as the 'ICP Bible'!' - Analytical ChemistryInductively coupled plasma/mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) has become a well accepted and widely used analytical chemistry technique. The chief advantage of ICP-MS is its ability to analyze many elements, either simultaneously or in a rapid sequence coupled with its sensitivity (ICP-MS is 100x more sensitive than some competitive techniques). ICP-MS is used to determine the elemental make-up of geological samples, seawater, acid rain, natural waters, alloys, high-purity mineral acids, organic solutions, biological samples, pharmaceuticals, polymers, and ceramics. This book covers the new instrumentation, theory, and applications that have emerged with the growing number of ICP-MS manufacturers in the marketplace.
