Isobar Selective Laser Photodetachment In Trace Element Analysis
Paper i proceeding, 2009
We are investigating the possibility to use laser photodetachment of negative ions as an isobaric selective filter in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). If successful, this method can be used to obtain higher sensitivity realized through better selectivity by suppression of molecular and/or elemental isobaric interference in different investigations using ultra rare isotopes in the 10−13 range and below.
