Last LA and LIBS Workshop of 2018

About this free LA and LIBS Workshop:


Date: Nov 8, 2018

Location: Applied Spectra Fremont Headquarters

Address: 46665 Fremont Blvd, Fremont, CA

Time: From 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM


For analyzing organic thin films to sintered ceramic parts,

Learn the latest advances in LIBS and Tandem LA-LIBS instrument!

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 analysis.  The use of ICP-MS for high sensitivity measurement down to sub-ppb concentration level has rapidly grown in recent times for environmental, specialty metal, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, and energy storage material analysis.  Laser ablation is a great technology that enables the direct solid analysis utilizing ICP-MS. Furthermore, recent instrumentation advance to integrate LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) into LA sampling instrument has enhanced the instrument capability to address impossible elements by ICP-MS (such as C, H, O, N, F, etc). Learn this powerful analytical technology and strengthen your research proposals.  Discover how industry is using the technology for rapid QC and making the products better.

What an ideal case – two simultaneous technologies that exist for every laser pulse!
