Abstract

Laser ablation sampling inside the cavity of an ion trap was used to provide direct atomic mass spectrometric analysis of solid metal samples. An ion trap was designed such that a pulsed Nd:YAG laser beam was used to ablate sample pins inserted radially through the ring electrode. To demonstrate the potential of this method, atomic mass spectra were obtained for metal alloy samples.
