Signal to Background
Signal to background ratio is reduced at constant resolution when the bandwidth is increased.
Spectral Interference or Peak Overlap
At high resolution, peaks can be well separated, eg As and Cd lines at 288.8 nm (0.005 nm resolution):
at low resolution, spectral processing is necessary to reduce spectral
interference, eg As and Cd lines at 288.8 nm (low resolution):
