Orlando, Florida Feb 26 – Mar 1

Applied Spectra is ready to showcase our latest instrumentation advances in LA chemical analysis. New hardware updates and options now make our J200 LIBS, LA, and Tandem LA-LIBS Instruments more sensitive, flexible, and ready to address any elements in the periodic table. Our data analysis software, Clarity, continues to outshine any software solutions for delivering accurate quantitative answers and powerful 2D/3D elemental imagining analysis. We look forward to meeting you at our booth #2365.

We would love to talk with you about:

  • All new J200 Femto iX Tandem LA-LIBS Instrument femtosecond LA-ICP-MS and LIBS at highly affordable cost
  • Vertex™ and Flex™ sampling cell innovation
  • Enhanced multi-channel CCD LIBS detector– significant limit of detection improvement at insignificant cost increase
  • LIBS2 Technology– eliminate performance compromise between detection sensitivity and broadband spectral coverage with the use of dual detectors.
  • Clarity Image -Powerful LA-ICP-MS and LIBS data analysis software for elemental imaging.

Attend a Short Course

Latest Advances in Laser Ablation Direct Solid Sampling for ICP-MS and ICP-OES
Instructor – Jhanis Gonzalez, Ph.D.

Tuesday, February 27, 8:30am -12:30pm (1/2 day course)

Short Course W222 | SC126


This short course is designed to provide an overview of direct solid analysis techniques provided by laser ablation. These techniques include LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry), LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) and Tandem LA-LIBS in which LA-ICP-MS and LIBS work together to obtain complementary elemental and isotopic information.

The effective sampling approaches for using LA for bulk, inclusion, depth profiling, and spatially resolved 2D and 3D mapping analysis will be highlighted. Finally, popular and emerging applications of LA-ICP-MS and LIBS will be overviewed. These example applications include the analysis of metal alloys, energy storage materials, geological samples, plastics, bio-tissue, soils, and forensic trace evidences.


Chemical Imaging Based on Laser Ablation-Based Techniques
presented by Jhanis Gonzalez, Ph.D.

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS and ICP-OES) are used simultaneously for spatially resolved mapping of major and trace elements and isotopes from a wide variety of solid samples.

The combination of the two techniques provides complementary measurements for elements that are separately unattainable due to low sensitivity and/or strong interferences. Two dimensional (2D) layer-by-layer mapping, 2D cross-sectional imaging and three-dimensional (3D) volume rendering of elements and isotopes in these samples are presented.
