Much has changed in the field of LA-ICP-MS since we published short course volume 29 on the same topic in 2001. The technique has matured and expanded markedly, both in terms of the specific instrumentation used and the application base it serves. While, in 2001, the primary use of the method in the Earth Sciences was for in situ analyses of trace-element concentrations, today a significant and growing volume of work done with these instruments is centred around in situ isotopic analyses.
