Richard Russo, Xianglei Mao, Dale Perry, Inhee Choi and colleagues at Applied Spectra and NASA

Richard Russo, Xianglei Mao, Dale Perry and Inhee Choi of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division, and their co-workers at other institutions named below, received the 2011 Elsevier/Spectrochimica Acta Atomic Spectroscopy Award for a series of three papers focused on a novel approach of performing accurate isotopic analysis called Laser Ablation Molecular Isotopic Spectrometry (LAMIS). LAMIS, which was developed by Russo and co-workers, represents a joint effort of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (University of California, Berkeley), Applied Spectra, Inc. (Fremont, CA) and NASA-Ames Research Center (Moffett Field, CA).

The group of papers selected for the Award is the following:
