In laser desorption mass spectrometry (LDMS) two different configurations concerning the arrangement of the laser and of the mass analysing system with respect to the sample are commonly used. In reflection-type instrumentation, irradiation and extraction of the desorbed ions are performed on the same side of the sample, in transmission-type instruments on opposite sides. This paper focuses exclusively on the latter type, particularly on the laser microprobe mass analyser LAMMA 500 (Leybold-Heraeus, Köln, F.R.G.).
