Laser Pyrolysis

Analysis of gaseous hazardous substances, emitted during laser pyrolysis, by means of GC/MS

For the laser pyrolysis, the material to be analyzed is placed within a gas-tight pyrolysis container which is equipped with a sample holder and an optical window. Through this window, a laser beam is focused onto the sample surface to induce the pyrolysis process. The released gaseous substances are transferred quantitatively into the analytical system (combination of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry – GC/MS) via an annealed injector coupling.
