Microanalysis of minerals by an Excimer UV-LA-ICP-MS system


This paper is a performance evaluation of a prototype laser-ablation microanalytical system composed of an UV Excimer laser and a high-sensitivity inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (XLA-ICP-MS). The laser was optimized for trace-element microanalysis of silicate minerals, and the effects of different parameters (laser power, focus, carder gas… (More)
