Laser Ablation ICPMS

Presenters: Detlef Günther & Bodo Hattendorf
ETH, Zurich, Switzerland

This short course will cover fundamental and applied aspects of experiments using laser ablation as sampling tool for spatially resolved ICPMS analysis. It will discuss, on a basic level, the phenomena occurring during LA and ICPMS analyses most relevant for interpretation of analytical results.

The topics covered include in particular:

- Laser matter interaction and the resulting aerosol
- Influence of laser ablation conditions
- Influence of the ICPMS operation conditions on ion signal intensities and intensity ratios
- Aspects of data acquisition
- Instrumental aspects in general
- Calibration strategies for quantitative analysis

The short course is also meant to be open for interaction and lively discussion of topics being raised by the audience.
