193 nm Obtained using OPO (Optical Parametric Oscillator) optics. Allows the advantage of a solid state laser, with the disadvantage of more complicated optics. Most general applicability. 193 nm Higher cost, but uses fundamental wavelength, eliminating the need for frequency multiplying crystals and their maintenance and alignment. Most general purpose wavelength. are described as transparent, what microscopists mean by transparent usually refers to the absorptivity in the visible. For LA the absorptivity at the wavelength of the laser radiation is the important property of the sample.

Nevertheless, the majority of element:Ca ratios were nearly unaffected, as can be seen in Figure 2-10. 5 %. In contrast Si, Zn, and Cd experienced pronounced shifts of approximately 3–5% due to a delayed evaporation of larger aggregates suppressing diffusion losses inside the According to Koch et al. (2007), the transport and entrainment of large aerosol aggregates as shown in Figure 2-8 may account for drastic density and temperature fluctuations inside the ICP during analysis, which probably changes signal intensities and their ratios.
