This recent publication from Lindsey Hendriks, Alexander Gundlach-Graham Bodo Hattendorf and Detlef Günther of ETH Zurich characterizes the performance of the icpTOF for the the multi-elemental analysis of liquid samples generated with a standard pneumatic nebulizer – cyclonic spray chamber sample-introduction system and single nanoparticles generated with a microdroplet sample-introduction system.
Some key results:
- icpTOF signal response is linear over 6 orders of magnitude intensity
- icpTOF isotope ratio precision follows ion-counting statistics
- Introduction of the concept of Ensemble Averaging for microdroplet-generated (MDG)-ICP-TOFMS signals
