Paper Abstract

A handheld LIBS instrument has been designed that includes most features found in large bench-top systems including variable gating, argon purge, high resolution, wide spectral range, sample rastering, and video targeting. In this presentation we will discuss the feature selection, trade-off decisions and new developments that made this kind of size reduction possible. Early results will be presented for elemental presence detection and quantification with specific emphasis on defense and security.
