Laser Ablation ICP-MS

Our facility of laser-ablation inductively-coupled-plasma mass-spectrometry hosts a GeoLas-Pro 2006 193 nm ArF Excimer laser system (Lambda Physik / Coherent) combined with an Elan DRC-e quadrupole mass spectrometer. A new fully automated LA-ICP-MS system will be installed in early 2018, to complement existing infrastructure.

Laser ablation ICP-MS

We specialize on the analysis of fluid and melt inclusions in minerals, but we perform high-quality spot analyses 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 corresponding publications

Access to analytical time in our lab may be possible, strictly following our LA-ICP-MS Lab Guideline (PDF, 16KB).

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