Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is an emerging technique for materials analysis that is rapidly maturing and is becoming increasingly accepted as an important tool in analytical chemistry. LIBS is also advancing as a technology as new commercial instruments are becoming available. The core attributes of (1) real-time analysis; (2) no sample preparation; (3) high sensitivity; (4) high specificity for materials identification; (5) sensitivity to all chemical elements in each laser… CONTINUE READING
