Laser Desorption Postionization Mass Spectrometry

Supplementing short pulse lasers with laser postionization increases ionization yields for desorption and ablation of solid samples in mass spectrometry. Here, we give an overview of the mechanisms and technical requirements for molecular photoionization in femtosecond (fs) laser desorption postionization mass spectrometry (LDPI-MS).
