Maldi-TOF Lasers

Maldi-TOF Lasers

Maldi- Time of flight spectroscopy is a method used in mass spectrometry for measuring the time it takes for ionized particles of different masses to drift to the detector.  For this process to work, there must be a mechanism in place to ionize the particles, one of the methods used is photoionization.  These time of flight spectroscopy lasers traditionally use high pulse energy q-switched ultraviolet lasers, because the photon energy must be greater than the ionization energy of the particle.  Recently though, it has been demonstrated that multi-photon conversation can also happen, making it possible to use mode-locked femtosecond lasers is some cases.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the time of flight spectroscopy lasers we offer, including picosecond and nanosecond pulsed diode-pumped solid-state lasers.
