About Talk: Bulk and micro analysis especially mapping heterogeneities and species distribution within solid samples is critical for understanding materials behavior, transport, and migration processes within those samples. Some of the most common examples are studies of corrosion on metals alloys, metal distribution inside plastics, distribution of species within rocks, and elemental distribution within biological tissues, etc. For analysis of lateral and depth heterogeneities, laser ablation with a combination of LAICP-MS, LAICPOES, and LIBS offers the ability to measure every element/isotope with high spatial resolution. In this presentation, Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (LAICP-MS/-OES) is used simultaneously chemically analyzed and spatially resolved mapping of major and trace elements and isotopes for a wide range of sample matrices. The combination of the two techniques provides complementary measurements for elements that are separately unattainable due to low sensitivity and strong interferences. Two-dimensional (2D) layer-by-layer mapping, 2D cross-sectional imaging and three-dimensional (3D) volume rendering of elements and isotopes from these samples are presented. These results pave the way for improved 3D elemental imaging through simultaneously acquired LIBS and LA-ICP-MS measurements.
