Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Lasers Overview

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), is an atomic spectroscopy technique where a small portion of the material is ablated by a laser and the resultant plasma emission plume is analyzed by a spectrometer to determine its atomic structure.  LIBS is commonly used in mining, forensics, and scrap metal applications for sorting metals and other samples which can’t be analyzed using molecular techniques.  This process requires that the LIBS lasers have high pulse energy in order to vaporize the sample and induce the plasma emission.  Since the plasma emission lifetime is between 100 nanoseconds and 10 microseconds, it is critical that LIBS lasers have a stable and repeatable pulse rate that can be used to trigger the spectrometer.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy lasers we offer ranging from compact passively q-switched microchip lasers to high pulse energy benchtop UV lasers.

RPMC has years of experience supporting LIBS applications, helping industry professionals select the right tool for the job.
