Laser Ablation ICP-MS

Our LA-ICP-MS facility hosts two independent systems:
(1) A fully automated Resonetics RESOlution SE laser ablation system combined with an Agilent 7900 ICP-QMS.
(2) A fully manual GeoLas-Pro 193 nm ArF Excimer laser system combined with an Elan DRC-e QMS.
The combination of laser ablation system and mass spectrometer can be chosen in our lab to best fit the specific needs of a given project.

Laser ablation ICP-MS

We specialize on the analysis of fluid and melt inclusions in minerals, but we perform high-quality spot and elemental map measurements of "any" materials from geological and material sciences. We are keen on analytical challenges to solve geoscientific problems. For a selection of completed projects, please refer to our corresponding publications.

Access to analytical time in our lab may be possible, strictly following our LA-ICP-MS Lab Guideline (pdf).

For additional information or submission of an analytical proposal, please contact Thomas Pettke.
