Near-field laser ablation (NF-LA) coupled with mass spectrometry (MS) is very promising for highly spatially resolved chemical analyses on various substrates at atmospheric pressure, for example, in materials and life science applications. Although nanoscale sample craters can be produced routinely, no molecular mass spectra of ablated material from craters… CONTINUE READING
