2011 Valledor

Rebeca Valledor from Oviedo, Spain, was awarded the Payling prize at the  Winterconference for Plasma Spectrochemisty 2011 in Zaragoza, Spain. She presented her work on the spatially resolved emission produced by a pulsed discharge source used for Mass spectrometry with much enthusiasm and quality. Earlier stages of this work are available in a JAAS article.
