Informing Spectroscopists for Over 40 Years

LIBS

NanoLIBS-Q

Handheld LIBS analyser customised to provide quantitative measurements. It is of rugged construction and IP54-rated with a battery life of >4 h. The laser beam is rastered to sample an area of ~300 µm. Custom calibrations are available for applications such as Li content in batteries, metal in alloys and the composition of catalysts, minerals or ceramics.

If laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy was a brand: some market considerations

Vince Palleschi takes a slightly different approach to reviewing the current state of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). He puts the strengths and weaknesses of LIBS in context and gives some examples of industrial applications.
 

Application of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for surface hardness measurements

Another surface problem is tackled by Richard Pilkington, Stuart Astin and John Cowpe: “Application of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for surface hardness measurements”. Measuring the hardness of materials is not entirely straightforward, and the authors show that laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy offers the potential for in situ hardness measurements, without prior sample preparation.
