Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy for the Analytical Laboratory
Tuesday, July 23, 2013
8:00 am PDT/11:00 am EDT
Laser-Induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is gaining acceptance as a compliment to ICP-OES and other elemental analysis methods. This webcast will illustrate laboratory uses of LIBS that provide both qualitative and quantitative data. Examples from pharmaceutical, metals, and other process industries will show how LIBS direct elemental analysis can save time and provide crucial information from routine analysis to depth profiles and surface concentration maps.
