Abstract: To obtain vital spectroscopic data, a specific tandem spectroscopic method consisting of excitation in the DC are separated from the evaporation process was applied. Recently developed tandem spectroscopic methods require a complex evaluation process that can be described by metrological characteristics and from them derived parameters. Evaluation of the novel method optimization process is a part of the application of some chosen, specific, and generally accepted statistical methods. For this purpose, it is suitable to determine parameters of the information theory. It is necessary to compare experimental parameters of the information theory with tolerance parameters representing the values which are supposed to be achieved. To evaluate the given parameters, influence of the concentration range used was taken into account.
