LASER ION SOURCES FOR TIME-OF-FLIGHT MASS SPECTROMETRY
International Journal of Mass Spectrometry and Ion Processes 131:87-124,
1994 Feb 24.
Different selective and non-selective laser induced ion and anion sources are
presented as well as their combination with time-of-flight mass spectrometers
either of linear or reflectron type. Resonance and non-resonance enhanced
laser ionization methods and their features of photofragmentation are
discussed, in their combination with inlet systems for neutral gases. Laser
induced VUV- and electron onization and laser desorption-postionization are
illustrated. Techniques and applications of multiple laser excitation in the ion
source and in the space focus are discussed to achieve synchronicity of two
experiments, or secondary laser excitation. Examples for laser spectroscopic
and mass spectrometric applications are given.
