Abstract
Progress is reported on the development of a new laser- and mass spectrometer- based technique for measurement of trace levels of radioisotopes. Significant results to date include the demonstration of high efficiency and throughput in a mass spectrometer, efficient production of metastable atoms from Ar+ and Kr+ beams, a demonstration of the photon burst detector principle with Mg+ ions, and the verification of zero background in a two- detector system.
