Ultrafast laser ablation for geochronology

Combine the ESI Lasers Bloodhound and DCI ultrafast laser ablation technology with the Thermo Scientific™ Neptune XT™ MC-ICP-MS to obtain excellent signal/noise ratio and sensitivity, which is highly beneficial to zircon petrochronology.

 

Using this system sacrifices the possibility of simultaneous measurement of Hf and U-Pb by LASS, however the increase in performance means two sequential, separate, measurements of Hf and U-Pb can achieve significantly better analytical results for less total volume ablated.
