    Abstract

    Laser generated aerosols from glass samples were filter collected before entering the inductively coupled plasma (ICP) to study their total and particle size dependent composition. Elemental concentrations in different particle size fractions on filters were compared with their response measured in the ICP. Particle above 125 nm and 340 nm were separated from the aerosol by a particle separation device. The results show an enrichment of elements such as Cu, Zn, Ag, Ti, Pb and Bi of up to 90% relative to Ca within the small particle size fraction of an aerosol in comparison with the total composition of the aerosol.
