What is Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)?
Laser-induced plasma spectroscopy (LIBS) is an analytical method of increasingly greater importance and impact regarding the elemental analysis. Among its advantages are simplicity, equipment portability, the ability to perform elementary identification of practically any material, rapidity of analysis, and capacity for microanalysis with high resolution and minimal material requirements.
The LIBS technique is a simple, straightforward, and powerful spectrochemical technique that has a broad capability for chemical analysis.
In particular, the multi-pulse emission, known as burst-mode in English, has been used in the analysis of various materials and has shown a substantial improvement in the intensity of emission characteristic lines and detection limits. In this emission regime, the laser uses a saturable absorber as a Q:Switch element, which induces the emission of several micro-pulses whose duration is of several nanoseconds contained within a single laser shot. Among its advantages, it should be noted that this type of Q:Switch is simple in design, does not require electronic control, and its cost is low compared to the electro-optical type.
