Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for Rapid Elemental Analysis of Solids

Event Date: October 15, 2013
USA 11:00 a.m. EDT, 8:00 a.m. PDT, 15:00 GMT

Sponsored by TSI, Inc.

Elemental analysis using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) was first introduced in 1962. Since then, the advancement of high-powered pulsed lasers, high-sensitivity spectrometers and computerized instrument control and data processing software have evolved LIBS from a scientific curiosity to a valuable complementary tool to other elemental analyzers. Over the past 51 years since its inventions, LIBS has been cited over 2000 times, and applications have ranged from high-profile forensics analyses to analyses of Martian soils on-board the NASA Mars Rover Curiosity.

In this webinar, find out the about the latest commercial LIBS instrument, TSI’s ChemReveal LIBS Desktop Analyzer, which brings the rapid elemental analysis capabilities of LIBS to your laboratory. From elemental quantification of trace and minor constituents in a variety of materials such as glass, polymers, and metals, to the rapid characterization of unknown solid and powder samples, see how LIBS can be used to qualitatively and quantitatively get the results you need.
