With this cooling system, which maintains the chemical composition and temperature of the frozen sample, a higher S/N was achieved for LIBS analysis of a NaCl solution.

This approach provides traceable and reliable quantitative elemental analysis of airborne particles for on-site environmental measurement with portable instrumentation.

This year’s EAS offers sessions live November 16–19 and on-demand until December 31.

This method detects elements intrinsically present in cells, and because sc-ICP-TOF-MS measures a full mass spectrum, no analytes are missed.

Advances in lasers are expanding the capabilities of LIBS and laser ablation techniques.

We compare the advantages and disadvantages of each laser wavelength.

We explore how different algorithms and different numbers of factors affect the results.
