Project: Isotopic analysis via the combination of laser ablation with single-collector and Multi-collector ICP - mass spectrometry

project duration
01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-11
abstract
Development of analytical strategies, based on the combination of deep-UV ArF* excimer laser ablation (LA) with single-collector or multi-collector ICP - mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for tackling challenging real-life problems, including the determination of the platinum group metals PGMs in Pb buttons obtained upon fire assay sample handling with LA-ICPMS using isotope dilution (ID) for calibration, quasi non-destructive isotopic analysis of valuable samples, spatially resolved isotopic analysis and 2-D and 3-D chemical imaging.
