Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
Mass spectrometry technique based on coupling a mass spectrometer with an inductively coupled plasma as an ion source that both atomizes samples into their constituent atoms and ionizes them to form atomic cations.
Note: The technique is highly sensitive for a range of metals and several non-metals, and provides information on isotopic distributions.
