## transport interference

in flame spectroscopy
https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.T06488
Transport interferences affect the amount of desolvated sample passing through the horizontal flame cross-section per unit time at the observation height. They include factors affecting the rate of liquid consumption, $$F_{\text{l}}$$, the efficiency of nebulization, $$\varepsilon_{\text{n}}$$, and the fraction desolvated $$\beta_{\text{s}}$$. They may be classified as non-specific (and physical).
