A technique is described which uses a laser-generated high-velocity polymer flyer to vaporize nonvolatile molecules and low-temperature matrix-isolated species. Morphology studies, time-of-flight measurements, static collection methods, and real-time laser-induced fluorescence were used to characterize the new vaporization technique. Cr(CO)6 in a mineral oil glass at 77 K, rhodamine dye, and naphthalene were vaporized in these experiments.
