Paper Abstract

Resonant and nonresonant laser ionization of sputtered neutral atoms are compared for silver/gold alloys and silica/silicon wafer implants. The results obtained from these two different ionization schemes represent complementary information on the sputtered species. There are chemical and photofragmentation effects that must be considered for quantitative determinations of the surface and sub-surface species. Both ionization schemes are necessary to obtain complete information on the sample.
