October 8-13, 2017
Booth #90

The story of Applied Spectra’s LA and LIBS product innovation continues and at SCIX 2017, we are ready to showcase latest advances in LIBS and LA solid sampling technologies. Visit our booth (#90) and learn about new features and capabilities of J200 Series LA and LIBS Instrument to advance your analytical research and open new possibilities for elemental/isotopic analysis.

In particular, we would love to discuss with you:

  • 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

Laser ablation in analytical chemistry is a sampling process; a short-pulsed laser beam is used to remove mass from a sample for subsequent ICP-MS/OES analysis. Laser ablation is also used to create luminous plasma whose emission spectra can be analyzed for elemental analysis (LIBS). This short course overviews laser ablation fundamentals and processes that impact the analytical performance of both LA-ICP-MS and LIBS.

The course also highlights technical advantages and analytical capabilities of these techniques with respect to other popular atomic spectroscopy techniques. Finally, this course will present latest advance to combine optical and particle detection during laser sampling to perform simultaneous LIBS and LA-ICP-MS analysis (Tandem LA – LIBS). Various examples of analytical applications and data analysis will be used to bring practical perspective on effective use of these techniques.
