LIBS works for metal and nonmetal analysis and materials identification

From sulfur to limestone to gemstones to carbon nanotubes, LIBS (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) is often the ideal technique for materials identification and analysis.

LIBS or Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy has many analysis applicationsLIBS—Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy—is a growing technique for analyzing metals, whether through a handheld device like the ChemLite Plus or part of a high-volume scrap stream system like the ChemLine sensor. LIBS is also effective for hundreds of other materials and applications, including stone and rock, glass, coatings, gems, coal, and pharmaceutical coatings and ingredients.

If your work involves analyzing, identifying, or verifying materials, LIBS may be the right method for you. Unlike XRF tools, analyzers like ChemLite are no-radiation/no-regs, and don't require a Radiation Officer. Make sure you consider these significant savings when calculating cost-of-ownership on your next analysis instrument. If your projects expand beyond metals, look at ChemReveal Desktop LIBS Analyzer for a wide range of capabilities.

We've built a LIBS library to better illustrate the scope of materials analysis that LIBS makes possible. Visit the LIBS Resources page to browse a growing collection of LIBS case studies, application notes, and other documentation. If you are considering a LIBS tool for your project or processes, information in these articles may help you make a more informed decision and make the case for a purchase.
