Abstract
We have developed a new method to measure krypton traces in xenon at so far unprecedented low concentrations. This is a mandatory task for many near-future low-background particle physics detectors. Our system is based on a cryogenic gas chromatographic krypton/xenon separation and a subsequent mass spectroscopic krypton quantification. We prove this system to reach a detection limit of 8 ppq (parts per quadrillion) and present results of distilled xenon with krypton concentrations below 1 ppt.
