Laser Ablation Molecular Isotopic Spectrometry: A New Dimension of LIBS


An interview with Alexander Bol'shakov, winner of a 2011 FACSS Innovation Award.

Part of a new podcast series presented in collaboration with the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS), in connection with SciX 2012 — the Great Scientific Exchange, the North American conference (39th Annual) of FACSS.

Alexander A. Bol'shakov is a senior scientist with Applied Spectra, Inc. (Fremont, CA). Dr. Bol'shakov and colleagues won a FACSS Innovation Award at the 2011 SciX conference for a presentation on Laser Ablation Molecular Isotopic Spectrometry. This work was a collaborative effort among Applied Spectra, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and NASA-Ames Research Center:

A.A. Bol'shakov, R.E. Russo, X. Mao, D.L. Perry and C.P. McKay, “Laser Ablation Molecular Isotopic Spectrometry – New Dimension of LIBS,” paper presented at SciX 2011, Reno, Nevada, 2011.

The FACSS Innovation Awards were launched at the 2011 SciX conference to showcase the newest and most creative science debuted orally at the conference.

More about the SciX conference:

The traditional North American meeting of FACSS is now SciX — The Great Scientific Exchange. SciX covers the whole of analytical chemistry with an emphasis on emerging technologies. SciX carries the FACSS tradition of a strong technical program (over 100 symposia), many prestigious awards, exhibits, a variety of workshops, an employment bureau and multiple social networking opportunities.

SciX is the National Meeting of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS).
