Research group Inorganic Trace Analysis
Our group specializes in elemental analysis of materials in wide range of application fields including material-, bio/life-, and environmental sciences. We employ both mass spectrometric and optical techniques such as (LA)-ICP-MS, (LA)-ICP-OES and LIBS with state-of-the-art instrumentation. To learn more, please navigate to the sections Techniques and Lab Equipment.
Thanks to years of experience in the field of inorganic mass spectrometry and optical emission spectroscopy, we exhibit expertise in:
- Imaging and depth-profiles
- Precise determination of sample composition (stoichiometry)
- Characterization of materials (polymers, ceramics, metals, alloys, biological specimens)
- Chemometrics and machine learning for material classification
An overview of our current research activities can be found in the section Research.
