Abstract

Ionization of neutral atoms sputtered from ion bombarded solids by multiphoton resonance ionization has been demonstrated for the first time. The ionization efficiency is several orders of magnitude greater than other post-ionization methods. This approach should find applications in the characterization of the chemistry and structure of solid surfaces and in the trace analysis of a wide variety of materials.
