Paper Abstract

A qualitative analysis of laser breakdown experiment in prickle pear ablation is presented. The experiments were made using a pulse free-running Nd:YAG laser, and consist in irradiating both the areole and cortex zones. It was find out that the intensity of spectra captured from ablated glochids depends from number of pulses and the presence of water. The picks observed on the electronic noise can be associated with combustion products obtained during thermal laser interaction. It was demonstrated that LIBS technique can be used for on-line monitoring in laser de-thorning machine.
