This volume focuses on the fundamentals of the technique of analysing material based on the atomic weight of the species, using the power and definition of lasers to enable measurement of smaller quantities and more finely localized particles. Each chapter deals with a particular application area and should be sufficient to form an entry point for the utilization of mass spectrometry by graduate students and researchers. The book provides the first full discussion of the new techniques of laser applications in the field.

Review quote

Overall the book is extremely well written and edited. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is currently working in the field of laser mass spectroscopy or any professor thinking of teaching a graduate level course in this area. The use of the laser is increasing in the field of analytical chemistry and this is a fantastic book to help the reader become familiar with the last advances in the field of laser mass spectroscopy. * Microchemical Journal * 'the book is a good reference source for those working with lasers and MS and for those interested in the advances in chemical analysis afforded by the coupling of these techniques'
