Laser Microprobe Laboratory


The laser microprobe lab uses a unique purpose built two-step laser mass spectrometer (L2MS) to investigate the nature and composition of organic matter in extraterrestrial materials. The L2MS technique combines non-thermal laser desorbtion with resonant laser photoionation and reflectron time-of-flight mass spectrometry to create an instrument capable of investing the organic composition in samples than can weigh less than a thousand millionth of a gram. This has enabled studies into the formation of life’s building blocks in the early solar system and preserved for billion of years in meteorites and comets, and provided the first identification of complex organic species in Martian meteorites….  Read More.
