Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy is an innovative and universal measuring method for the analysis of the composition of a wide variety of materials. With the help of a laser, a very small sample volume is vaporized and ionized. The light emission of this plasma is specific for each element and is recorded by a spectrometer. From the obtained spectra, extensive evaluations of the composition of the sample can be done.
In combination with powerful evaluation algorithms, the LIBS technology enables very fast and precise multi-element analyses and offers the following advantages:
- Measurement of the element distribution in the volume and on the surface within seconds
- Determination of all (also light) elements possible
- No sample preparation necessary
- Even hot samples can be measured
- Very good spatial resolution due to small measuring spot
- High measuring frequency for fast measurements despite high measuring point density
- 3D surface measurement allows measurement of irregularly shaped samples
- Sample size up to 600 x 400 x 140 mm
We develop specific LIBS methods for your process application.
