The @[email protected] from the column is fed into a hydrogen-rich flame and produces light emission. Optical filters are used to select the @[email protected] range of the emission which is characteristic of specific atoms (usually sulfur or phosphorus). The detector is very specific, depending on the choice of optical filters. It can detect the S- and P-containing compounds down to $$10^{-3}\ \text{ppmv}$$, but the detector is non-linear.
