Meet Applied Spectra at the 2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectroscopy

2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry
Amelia Island, Florida,
January 8 – 13, 2018

Plasma Spectrochemistry for Trace Element, Stable Isotope, and Elemental Speciation Analyses

Visit our booth (#16-17) to learn about how new features and capabilities of our J200 Series LA and LIBS Instruments can advance your analytical research and open up new possibilities for elemental/isotopic analysis.

We would love to talk with you about:

  • All new J200 Femto iX LA Instrument- ultrafast laser sampling solution for high accuracy and precision performance at affordable cost
  • Vertex™ and Flex™ LA sample cell innovation
  • Powerful Clarity LA-ICP-MS and LIBS data analysis software
  • J200 Tandem LA-LIBS Instrument and new analytical applications

Attend Short Course for LIBS Basics and Tandem LA-LIBS Analysis
SS-04 Latest Advances in Laser Ablation-Based Chemical Analysis and Emerging Applications: LIBS, LA-ICP-(OES/MS), and Tandem LA–LIBS

  • Speaker: Jhanis Gonzalez, Applied Spectra/ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Date/Time: Monday, January 8 / 7:00 pm

Course Abstract:

Laser ablation has advanced over the last 50 years to become a successful technology for numerous chemical analysis applications. Breakthroughs in understanding the science of the ablation process and development of improved laser and detector components have led to reliable analytical measurement performance.

The course will summarize key underlying mechanisms of the ablation process that are critical for accurate and precise measurements using LIBS and ICP-MS. This course will cover state of art systems and performance, example applications, and directions for future capabilities.
