The energy spread of laser desorbed ions can be measured with a time-of-flight analyzer, using a drawout pulse with variable delay after the laser pulse to separate the desorption time profile from the energy spread information. The energy spread varies from 15 eV immediately following the laser pulse to 0.31 eV at longer times.
