Standard specifications of ANALYTE G2 laser system can be found on Teledyne CETAC or Teledyne Photon websites. Our system, however, has significant in-house customisations as we are collaborating with Teledyne Photon Machines in research and development of next generation laser facilities.
Unique specifications of our system include:
- Large volume (150 mmx150mm) Helex ablation cell with in-house deigned sample holder for coral and speleothem samples (Video here).
- Improved inner cup for ultra-fast washouts (0.25 sec to 1% levels) based on our Computational fluid dynamics modelling
- Rotating aperture with large beam size of 250x250 um which allows tracing of coral/speleothem growth bands and map complex geological features with less than 5 um spatial resolution.
- Distortion and leak-free particle transmission line to ICPs, which include customised CleanShot and various in-house build signal smoothing units (6 and 12 holes squids for smoothing 4hz and 2hz signals) and centrifuge particle filter with option of ‘wet plasma’ laser ablation.
