Paper Abstract

Resonance ionization mass spectrometry (RIMS) is an analytical tool discovered in the 1970's, developed primarily in the 1980's, and one which will undoubtedly see continued and expanding use through the 1990's. This technique combines laser ionization with mass spectrometric sorting and detection to yield analyses of unparalleled sensitivity and selectivity. We discuss the application of RIMS to the analysis of conventional analytical samples, as well as the combination of RIMS with laser or particle beam sputtering for the analysis of solids and surfaces with minimal sample preparation.
