ESLumen - Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy
High-speed, high-resolution
LIBS-ICPMS imaging

LA-ICPMS analysis


la icp ms technique

, la icp ms sample preparation, LA-ICPMS method


  • Microanalytical technique for in-situ multi-elemental analysis on the micron scale
  • Expands elemental coverage to high ionization potential elements such as F and atmospheric elements such as H, N, and O
  • Increases the dynamic range of laser ablation experiments (e.g. major elements): sub-ppb to % range
  • Provides improved data for ICPMS interfered elements
  • Multidetector confirmation of elemental concentrations and profiles
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy elements

LIBS-ICPMS offers flexibility, increased dynamic range, and elemental coverage that is not possible with ICPMS alone.
