The occurrence of isobaric (same mass) interferences presents a persistent problem to the precise experimental determination of isotope ratios.1 The problem is particularly acute when large isotope ratios must be measured, and in the determination of extremely small samples, where counting statistics will make subtraction of a background signal rather inaccurate. While there exist classical techniques for reducing background interferences, the application of resonance ionization mass spectrometry (RIMS) currently seems most likely to provide an optimal solution to this problem.2-8 We present here a preliminary report on the application of RIMS to the selective detection of technetium.
