LIBS Basics, Part III: Deriving the Analytical Answer — Calibrated Solutions with LIBS
October 1, 2014

Users must be careful when developing material classification and calibration methods for LIBS. By following some guidelines, one can achieve relative standard deviation values of 2–3% for many types of analysis, and below 1% for homogenous samples.

LIBS Basics, Part II: Hardware
April 1, 2014

The choices for LIBS hardware are discussed in detail, particularly lasers and spectrometers, and the trade-offs between cost, size, and performance are illustrated.

LIBS Basics, Part I: Measurement Physics and Implementation
January 1, 2014

An overview for those considering implementation of LIBS to solve a particular analytical problem, and an introduction for those interested in learning more about LIBS. Part I concentrates on the basics of the measurement and typical implementation.
