Paper Abstract

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is an emerging atomic emission spectroscopic technique that offers the prospect highly- selective, sensitive, and of real-time detection and analysis of both natural and man-made materials. Because LIBS is simultaneously sensitive to all chemical elements due to detector response in the 200-980nm range with 0.1 nm spectral resolution, the technique has many attributes that make it an attractive tool for a variety of military, security, and environmental applications.
