This tool allows for the utilization of a short pulse width 193nm excimer laser source. With this source, the NWR system can provide the highest peak power for efficient ablation of all materials to produce small particles that can be efficiently transported and ionized by the ICP. The result – higher sensitivity, improved stability and less fractionation.



  • Wavelength: 193 nm
