Title: Tailored nanopost arrays (NAPA) for laser desorption ionization in mass spectrometry

Abstract

The production and use of semiconducting nanopost arrays made by nanofabrication is described herein. These nanopost arrays (NAPA) provide improved laser ionization yields and controllable fragmentation with switching or modulation capabilities for mass spectrometric detection and identification of samples deposited on them.
