Research Vision: My research is aimed towards the development of novel analytical instruments and their related methods to aid the analysis of broad range applications. Special emphasis is given to collaborations with the international analytical instrument industry in order to obtain wide spread use of my scientific developments and inventions and to achieve this way real impact on mankind. 


Recent Research Areas and Contributions in Analytical Instrument Development. Recent emphasis is given to on Mass Spectrometry with Supersonic Molecular Beams: 


  1. GC-MS with Cold EI – The quest for ultimate performance GC-MS. 

  2. Supersonic LC-MS – Library searchable EI mass spectra for a broad range of LC compounds.  

  3. Isotope Abundance Analysis method and software for improved sample identification.

  4. Pulsed flow modulation for cryogen free GCxGC and GCxGC-MS. 

  5. Fast and Ultra Fast GC and GC-MS.    

  6. Open Probe Fast GC-MS - Real time Analysis with separation.

  7. Challenging GC-MS applications analysis with emphasis on Forensic, Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Hydrocarbon analysis. 

  8. Pulsed Flame Photometric Detector (PFPD) – The best FPD and much more.

  9. ChromatoProbe sample introduction device for MS probe and low cost simple to use thermal desorption analysis. 

  10. SnifProbe – Improved field sample collection. 

  11. Electrolyzer FID – Gas Cylinder Free FID.
