A New Mass Spectrometry Method for Analyzing Complex Samples
Steven J. Ray, of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, has won the 2014 Lester W. Strock award for his work with a new form of mass spectrometry (MS) for analyzing complex samples: distance time-of-flight MS. In a new interview, Ray explains the technique, including how it differs from time-of-flight MS and when its use can be advantageous. MORE »
Laser Ablation Molecular Isotopic Spectrometry for Rare Isotopes of the Light Elements
This article describes measurements of isotopes of hydrogen, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and chlorine using laser ablation molecular isotopic spectrometry (LAMIS). Requirements for spectral resolution of the optical detection system could be significantly relaxed when the isotopic ratio was determined using chemometric regression models. Multiple applications of LAMIS are anticipated in the nuclear power industry, medical diagnostics and therapies, forensics, carbon sequestration, and agronomy studies. MORE »
