Laser Metal Analyzer
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy is one type of the atomic emission spectroscopy. It uses high energy, short laser pulse to excite surface and achieve optical breakdown. By analyzing the emitted optical spectrum it obtains both qualitative and quantitative information about the material composition. In recent years the miniaturization of high power, pulsed laser and optical spectrometer makes the portable, handheld LIBS spectrometer a reality. The handheld instrument can be used outside a laboratory and in many more manufacturing environments. Its main applications include identifying and sorting stainless steels, aluminum alloys, copper alloys, magnesium alloys, and nickel alloys. Handheld LIBS spectrometer can help streamline materials identification or sorting during manufacturing processes. It can be integrated seamlessly with the current quality control processes.
