Abstract: A very high temperature furnace (up to 3000 °C) for the Knudsen cell mass spectrometry (KCMS) based on a laser heating technique has been developed. It is demonstrated that this system overcomes some of the typical technological problems encountered by the standard methods and can be more easily handled in special environments such as gloveboxes or hot cells. This paper describes the laser heated KCMS general design. The technology of the laser furnace along with its advantages, disadvantages, and applications is presented. Mechanical designs, some technical details, and the importance of the temperature control are also discussed
