This section of our website provides a useful information resource for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS). Throughout this section you can find information on the basic principle of operation employed in LIBS (About LIBS), previous and current applications of LIBS technology (LIBS Applications), and analytical measurement performance of LIBS (Analytical Capabilities). The Analytical Capabilities section provides a comprehensive database of scientific publications grouped by each element of interest and conveniently accessible by clicking on the relevant entry in a dynamic Periodic Table. Links to other sites (eg. NIST) containing useful and relevant information are also included.  For some elements, we have included an example of an emission spectrum obtained during LIBS analysis of that element. The database and associated dynamic Periodic Table are updated on an ongoing basis.
