Book Description :

Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is basically an emission spectroscopy technique where atoms and ions are primarily formed in their excited states as a result of interaction between a tightly focused laser beam and the material sample. The interaction between matter and high-density photons generates a plasma plume, which evolves with time and may eventually acquire thermodynamic equilibrium. One of the important features of this technique is that it does not require any sample preparation, unlike conventional spectroscopic analytical techniques. Samples in the form of solids, liquids, gels, gases, plasmas and biological materials (like teeth, leaf or blood) can be studied with almost equal ease. LIBS has rapidly developed into a major analytical technology with the capability of detecting all chemical elements in a sample, of real- time response, and of close-contact or stand-off analysis of targets. The present book has been written by active specialists in this field, it includes the basic principles, the latest developments in instrumentation and the applications of LIBS . It will be useful to analytical chemists and spectroscopists as an important source of information and also to graduate students and researchers engaged in the fields of combustion, environmental science, and planetary and space exploration. * Recent research work * Possible future applications * LIBS Principles

Book Description :

This book deals with the Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) a widely used atomic emission spectroscopy technique for elemental analysis of materials. It is based on the use of a high-power, short pulse laser excitation. The book is divided into two main sections: the first one concerning theoretical aspects of the technique, the second one describing the state of the art in applications of the technique in different scientific/technological areas. Numerous examples of state of the art applications provide the readers an almost complete scenario of the LIBS technique. The LIBS theoretical aspects are reviewed. The book helps the readers who are less familiar with the technique to understand the basic principles. Numerous examples of state of the art applications give an almost complete scenario of the LIBS technique potentiality. These examples of applications may have a strong impact on future industrial utilization. The authors made important contributions to the development of this field.

Book Description :

This book is a comprehensive source of the fundamentals, process parameters, instrumental components and applications of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The effect of multiple pulses on material ablation, plasma dynamics and plasma emission is presented. A heuristic plasma modeling allows to simulate complex experimental plasma spectra. These methods and findings form the basis for a variety of applications to perform quantitative multi-element analysis with LIBS. These application potentials of LIBS have really boosted in the last years ranging from bulk analysis of metallic alloys and non-conducting materials, via spatially resolved analysis and depth profiling covering measuring objects in all physical states: gaseous, liquid and solid. Dedicated chapters present LIBS investigations for these tasks with special emphasis on the methodical and instrumental concepts as well as the optimization strategies for a quantitative analysis. Requirements, concepts, design and characteristic features of LIBS instruments are described covering laboratory systems, inspections systems for in-line process control, mobile systems and remote systems. State-of-the-art industrial applications of LIBS systems are presented demonstrating the benefits of inline process control for improved process guiding and quality assurance purposes.

Book Description :

The purpose of this project is to show how laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and digital imaging processing can be used for indirect dating, authentication, and identification of oil paint pigments. Ten oil paint pigments from traditional and modern palettes were used for the analysis. Since synthetic paints (modern) were not available prior to the 19 century, the presence of a synthetic paint could allow for determination of whether the artwork was conserved in the past or it if was a forgery. LIBS and digital imaging processing were used to analyze the oil paint pigments in both pure form and binary mixture form. In LIBS, a laser pulse is focused on a surface and this focused pulse heats, ablates, atomizes, and ionizes the surface material. This causes the formation of a plasma and the light emitted by the plasma is collected, spectrally resolved, and detected. Elements contained in the sample can be identified by their distinctive spectral signatures. LIBS can provide both qualitative and quantitative results. It has many applications from space to defense including metal sorting, explosive and fissile material detection, lead in paint determination, heavy metal contamination in soil, identification of cultural heritage objects, etc. For this part of the study, the data was taken on pure and binary mixtures using ten shot accumulation analysis. The data was analyzed to determine what spectral emission lines could be used to uniquely determine one pigment from another. The pure and mixture pigments in single and multilayer samples were analyzed with image processing technology and algorithms. The digital images were used to create image histograms. Using the image histogram, the peak location was used to determine if differences among the pure and binary mixture pigments existed and whether unique peak locations in the histograms of the pure pigments or mixture pigments were seen.

Book Description :

The utilization of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) as a potential material characterization technique has been demonstrated through academic and industrial research in past. LIBS has been applied for lateral surface scanning of materials and in depth resolution analysis. The necessity of improving lateral and depth resolution has led to the the development of microLIBS, a regime using low energy microjoule laser pulses. Femtosecond lasers have advanced the technique by its ability to produce high finer micromachined features. The optimization of pulse energy, optics, detectors and experimental environments are required to obtain precise surface microanalysis using LIBS. This thesis has been focused on a number of essential aspects of LIBS microanalysis. Laser ablation characteristics of materials depend on laser parameters and material properties. The single shot ablation threshold of chromium has been determined using UV femtosecond laser pulses and compared with two temperature model (TTM) predictions. The spatio-temporal evolution of the femtosecond laser induced micro-plasma plumes were characterized in the nanojoule ablation regime. The plume splitting, angular distribution of the plumes, plume lengths and plume images at threshold energies were characterized. Analytical models were used to compare plasma plume expansion and propagation characteristics. A LIBS depth profiling technique has been studied together with deep blind hole drilling using femtosecond laser pulses. The material removal rates were measured and compared with analytical calculations. The depth sensitive region that contributes to the LIBS emission has been evaluated for a single shot depth profiling study. It has been demonstrated by experiment and TTM model calculations that the depth sensitive region is much smaller than the ablated crater depth. Thin chromium lines on silicon wafers were prepared and scanning microanalysis across these metal strips using UV femtosecond pulses were carried out. Lateral resolution of the order of a micron has been obtained using LIBS.

Book Description :

The Army is interested in sensors capable of characterizing/monitoring the environment (battlefield or military training ranges) at proximal distances. Recently, we evaluated laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) systems (hand-held, proximal, and bench top) for the characterization of metals (antimony, copper, lead, tungsten, and zinc) in soils obtained from military training ranges. We then compared the results to findings obtained with standard field and laboratory instrumentation for metals analysis - X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Inductively Couple Plasma- Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES).
