We have proposed Laser Induced Fluorescence analysis using Doppler Shift of laser ablated atoms for Isotope Analysis (LIF-DS-IA). This isotope analysis is expected to have a small mass discrimination effect because the detection target is fluorescence photons instead of ions, which distort the measured isotope ratio by the space charge effect. We demonstrate this technique to be feasible through the model calculations. We experimentally confirmed the fundamental behavior in LIF-DS-IA that the shift in the irradiating laser frequency corresponds to that of peak position in the time domain LIF spectra. The reason of poor mass resolution in the present system was considered to be inadequate definition in the field of view of the fluorescence detector.
