Abstract

The temporal behaviour of the laser enhanced ionization (LEI) signal of mercury was studied in a quartz cell under low buffer gas pressure. Using fast electronics and a short (34 ns) laser pulse, it was possible to distinguish between the non-selective photoionization component of the signal and that which was due to collisional ionization from selected levels in one time-resolved ionization waveform.
