- The laser-induced vaporization of iron and of a binary solid compound, zirconium hydride, was studied using a quadrupole mass spectrometer. A Q-switch ruby laser with pulse width of 80 nanoseconds was used to heat zirconium hydride samples under high vacuum to temperatures up to 2500°C. The mass spectrometer ionizer was located in a line-of-sight path 40 cm from the target. By an analysis of the measured mass spectrometer signals, the rate of vaporization of hydrogen during the rapid temperature transient could be determined.
