Paper Abstract

Due to potential of applications, self-trapping of a peak-power laser pulse in a so called filament became an intensively investigated phenomenon. In this paper we demonstrate experimentally advantages of using filaments for the remote laser induced plasma spectroscopy (LIBS). This novel approach can increase effective range of conventional LIBS system up to single kilometers. We also show that Fourier-limited pulse does not optimize LIBS signal, opening the perspective for the pulse shaping techniques in a break-down spectroscopy.
