Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) of silicon was performed using a nanosecond pulsed frequency doubled Nd:YAG (532 nm) laser. The temporal evolution of the laser ablation plumes was characterized under a range of low pressures. Electron densities were determined from the Stark broadening of the Si (I) 288.16 nm emission line and were found to be(More)
In the title compound, [Cu(C(5)HF(6)O(2))(2)(C(3)H(4)N(2)Se)(2)], the Cu(II) atom (site symmetry ) is coordinated by two O,O'-bidentate 1,1,1,5,5,5-hexa-fluoro-2,4-penta-nedione (hp) ligands and two 4-methyl-1,2,3-selenadiazole mol-ecules, resulting in a slightly distorted trans-CuN(2)O(4) octa-hedral geometry in which the cis angles deviate by less than 3°(More)

Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was employed to optimise LIBS analysis of single crystal silicon at atmospheric pressure and under vacuum conditions (pressure ~10-6 mbar). Multivariate analysis software (StatGraphics 5.1) was used to design and analyse several multi-level, full factorial RSM experiments. A Quality Factor (QF) was conceived as the(More)
