Handbook of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.


Handbook of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.

Cremers, David A. and Leon J. Radziemski.

John Wiley & Sons


283 pages




Cremers and Radziemski, researchers in the private sector, provide an update on developments and applications in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), and review the principles of plasma spectroscopy and analytical spectrochemistry as they applies to LIBS. They overview the elements of a LIBS apparatus, deal with fundamental concepts of spectroscopic chemical analysis, review LIBS capabilities and limitations, and explore application of LIBS to qualitative and quantitative analysis using real-world examples. Other topics covered include remote LIBS measurement and future directions.
