Yield deeper insights with short pulse, deep UV reliable and robust laser ablation of the most challenging materials.

Accurate and precise results on even the most challenging sample types.

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.


Excimer-Based Laser Ablation: higher sensitivity, improved stability, and less fractionation.
