Trace analyses

by Bertrand CHAZALLON, Claire PIRIM, Cristian FOCSA, Michael ZISKIND, Yvain CARPENTIER - published on , updated on


Welcome to the Analysis of Traces (ANATRAC) physics research group!

The unifying theme within our group is to develop and use state-of-the-art surface science techniques to unravel the details occurring at gas-surface interfaces or in both gas and solid phases under radiation. Our research is based upon an interdisciplinary approach and thus encompasses both fundamental and applied science that span over many fields of investigation such as chemistry, biology, material science, as well as planetary and environmental science. Three research axes are currently conducted within our group:

- Sample characterizations and investigations of heterogeneous processes relevant to atmospheric and environmental sciences. This theme includes i) the search for trace atmospheric gases in natural and artificial ice cores and related multicomponent phase equilibrium measurements, ii) the investigation of natural hydrocarbons capture and storage in water ice cage-like structures, with potential application to CO2 sequestration technologies, iii) the characterization of soot materials and that of their adsorbed phase to better understand aerosols growth in combustion processes, and iv) the exploration of ice nucleation properties of natural and anthropogenic aerosols, as well as those of their surrogates. Surface science techniques used here include L2MS (two step laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry), REMPI (Resonance-enhanced multiphoton mass spectrometry), ToF-SIMS (Time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry), micro-Raman and micro-FTIR (Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy).

- Innovative applications of laser ablation in biology and medicine. The goal of this research topic is to improve the performance of the MALDI (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization) technique and develop a versatile tool for in-vivo analysis using laser ablation coupled mass spectrometry.

- Laser ablation plasma investigations and application to the synthesis and characterization of materials with high technological potential. This research program undertakes fundamental investigations (both theoretical and experimental) regarding i) the spatio-temporal dynamics of transitional plasmas generated by nano/pico/femto-second laser ablations, ii) the growth of thin films by PLD (Pulsed Laser Deposition), and iii) the study of technological materials under intense irradiation.
