Abstract : A double-focusing mass spectrograph was modified, and methods developed, to permit the analysis of special solid samples. New ion sources were developed that have a high intrinsic efficiency. A source was developed which employs a laser beam for local heating, to permit the analysis of microregions. (Author)
