Solid Sampling ESL193
Yield deeper insights with short pulse, deep UV reliable and robust laser ablation.

Excimer-based laser ablation system, ideal for opaque and highly transmissive materials alike.

Utilization of a short pulse width 193nm excimer laser source provides highest peak power for efficient ablation of all materials to produce small particles that can be efficiently transported and ionized by the ICP. The result – higher sensitivity, improved stability and less fractionation.

Higher sensitivity, improved stability, and less fractionation.
