ESL laser ablation solutions can yield deeper insights

The MIR102 is a versatile fusion and heating system for MS applications. It uses a continuous wave CO2 laser with a 10.6 micron wavelength to enable stepped heating of samples for analyte introduction into an Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS). The classic application of the system is 40Ar-39Ar geochronology using a noble gas mass spectrometer.
