Inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) has been applied to the determination of some actinides and the isotopic composition of plutonium. The analysis of plutonium for metal impurities, including americium, has been reported. Prevalent figures of merit stated in the ICP-AES literature are experimentally determined detection limits. As a consequence, these were studied for the most sensitive lines of americium, curium, neptunium, and plutonium on a spectrometer system of moderate resolution. Our results are compared to published detection limits for some of the actinides. Data for curium, an element not previously investigated, are also included.
