27 September 2013 Composition depth profiling by soft x-ray laser-ablation mass spectrometry
Author Affiliations +
Mass spectrometry plays a vital role in the direct examination of the chemical composition of solids. We have introduced the use of soft x-ray laser ablation for mass spectrometry imaging. Here we demonstrate the method potential for composition depth profiling of multilayer stacks consisting of tens of nanometers thick metal and dielectric films.
