Inductively Coupled Plasma Chef
Lu Yang is a chemist-come-cooking icon who is bridging gaps in our fundamental knowledge of the elements, one ICP-MS experiment at a time…
What are your main scientific responsibilities?
Currently as a Senior Research Officer at the National Research Council Canada (NRC), I’ve conducted leading research in inductively coupled plasma MS (ICP-MS) and multicollector (MC)-ICP-MS for over 20 years.
My main responsibilities in this role? Development of MC-ICP-MS for the accurate and precise isotopic characterization of materials for Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) purposes (including study of mass bias and mass bias corrections), representing the NRC in participating Consultative Committee for Amount of Substance (CCQM) intercomparisons to demonstrate the measurement capabilities of Canada, and – of course – communication of our findings via the usual channels – publications and conference presentations! Beyond the NRC, I also act as an editorial board member for the Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry.
