Abstract

 Combining Laser-Induced-Breakdown-Spectroscopy and Mass-Spectrometry

 
Our efforts target to enhance the capabilities of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) by combining optical emission spectroscopy with simultaneous mass analysis (Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry, TOF-MS) instrumentation, which yields complementary isotopic analysis and identification of molecular fragments, thus, enabling complete structural and compositional characterization.
Such combined studies are applied for the analysis of the composition and structure of cultural heritage materials due to their major importance to historians and conservators.
