imageGEO193 Data & Image Mapping

A configurable approach to geochemical analysis of any sample


  • Wavelength: 193 nm
  • Repetition Rate: 0 to 500 Hz
  • Fluence: ≥15 J/cm2 (high resolution attenuation)
  • Ablation Chamber: TwoVol3
  • Provides up to 150 microns in 1 micron increments/resolution via the patented IVA device


  • Spot Size: extendable to 220 µm (circular and rectangular spots)
  • Repetition Rate: optional 1000 Hz (a water cooled option is available for 100% duty cycle which is required for long imaging experiments)
  • Imaging mode offers single peak resolution of 1 ms (FW0.1M) for imaging at 1000 pixels per second
  • Analytical mode gives stable signal intensity <1.5 %RSD for isotope/element ratio analysis
  • Tuneable washout speed from ms to s to cover all applications
  • Ablation Chamber: TwoVol2 (optional upon request)
  • Swap between modes in <5 minutes
