  author={U Adarsh and V. K. Unnikrishnan and Parinda Vasa and Sajan D. George and Santhosh Chidangil and Deepak Mathur},
Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has become a proven contemporary workhorse for qualitative and quantitative analysis of materials. Recent developments in LIBS have been limited either to signal enhancement strategies or to advances in data analysis techniques that yield better interpretation of LIBS data. Explorations of the initial laser excitation stage of LIBS remain somewhat restricted. In particular, the influence, if any, of the polarization state of excitation laser remains…

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Based on Single Beam Splitting and Geometric Configuration for Effective Signal Enhancement

The temporal analysis, in which the intensity of atomic lines in SP-LIBS decayed at least ten times faster than the SBS-LI BS, proved that the energy coupling efficiency of SBS -LIBS was significantly higher than that of SP- LIBS.

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is an atomic emission spectroscopy. Atoms are excited from the lower energy level to high energy level when they are in the high energy status. The

Observations in Collinear Femtosecond—Nanosecond Dual-Pulse Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Initial studies indicate that the primary source of dual-pulse LIBS enhancement in the collinear configuration may in large part be a matter of pulse focus; focusing on the sample surface yields atomic emission enhancements whose lifetime correlates reasonably well with the femtosecond LIP emissive lifetime, suggesting that plasma–plasma coupling may play an important role at that pulse focus.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Polarization effects on the ionization of molecules under picosecond and femtosecond laser excitation

We report experimental results related to the effect of laser polarization on the angular distributions of ions produced by the interaction of high-intensity short laser pulse radiation with CS2,

Polarization-resolved laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.

It is shown that plasma polarization measurements can be used to enhance the sensitivity of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and is demonstrated for LIBS detection of copper and carbon samples ablated by pairs of femtosecond laser pulses.

Dual-Pulse LIBS Using a Pre-Ablation Spark for Enhanced Ablation and Emission

In this paper we report the first observations of dual-pulse laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) signal enhancements by using a pre-ablation spark. In this technique a laser pulse is brought

Electron rescattering and the fragmentation dynamics of molecules in strong optical fields

We have probed the fragmentation dynamics in a bent triatomic molecule (water), a nonplanar molecule (methanol), and a planar ring-structured molecule (benzene), using 100 fs duration pulses of
