Gas-liquid inclusions of superquartzites from the the Bural-Sarjdag mines are studied using a laser ablation complex based on a NexION 300D quadrupole mass spectrometer. It is found that the results from mass spectrometric elemental analysis with inductively coupled plasma are influenced by the main parameters of laser radiation with a wavelength of 213 nm (using an NWR-213 platform) and by a sample’s properties.
