Paper Abstract

Experimental results are presented concerning the application of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for the detection of metals in plastics and biological tissues. LIBS has been used for the detection and the determination of the concentration of antimony in plastic and manganese in human hairs respectively. Calibration curves are presented for the above metals and the limiting factors of the technique are discussed.
