About this book

Introduction

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.

Reviews

“The subject of this book concerns a theoretical description of the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technique … . this book of large interest to the large community of consumers, researchers and developers of the LIBS techniques.” (Francesco Caridi, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 58 (3), June, 2017)
