A gold (Au) capillary has higher thermal conductivity than a stainless steel capillary and can withstand capillary over-heating induced by high CO(2) laser irradiation (over 2.5 W) better than a stainless steel capillary. For this study, a laser spray using an Au capillary was applied for the detection of sugars. The signal of cationized compounds [M+Na](+) can be detected with higher sensitivity than with conventional laser sprays using high laser power (over 2.7 W). Using 3.5 W of laser power, the signal intensity is 15 times higher than the maximum value with stainless steel (2.3 W) in a 10(-5) M maltose aqueous solution. It is considered that almost all the water molecules evaporate by laser irradiation, which is impossible to achieve using a stainless steel capillary.
