Unlocking the Full Potential of Laser Ablation Chemical Images Using Clarity Image Plus Software

LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) and LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry) are two analytical techniques that have been gaining popularity for performing rapid elemental mapping in recent times. The advances in the LA sample cell design, LIBS data acquisition speed, instrumentation platform (Tandem LA – LIBS) to enable simultaneous measurement of LIBS and LA-ICP-MS are creating opportunities for extracting a wealth of chemical information and rapidly understanding the distribution of elements and isotopes of interest. LIBS and LA-ICP-MS are becoming a go-to technique for elemental screening and imaging for tissue samples, structured thin films, advanced Li-ion battery materials, and inclusion ID in metals and geological minerals.

Webinar Time: Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 8:00 AM PST – 9:00 AM PST (Duration: 1 hour)
Webinar Presenter: Dr. Jhanis Gonzalez, Technical Director, Product R&D and Management at Applied Spectra Inc

This technical seminar focuses on the use of Clarity Image Plus™, a powerful software tool for the J200 LIBS, LA, and Tandem LA – LIBS Instrument, for performing elemental imaging analysis. The Clarity Image Plus™ software works with optical emission and mass spectra acquired and processed by the J200 instrument data analysis software Clarity™. The Clarity™ seamlessly connects with the Clarity Image Plus™ to produce detailed LA-ICP-MS and LIBS chemical maps that can be overlaid on top of the sample image captured by the vision system of the J200 LIBS, LA, and Tandem LA – LIBS instrument. Each pixel on the map captures all emission and mass spectra data and can be displayed in any area of interest. The webinar attendees will get an overview of this powerful software that takes the LIBS and LA-ICP-MS elemental imaging to the next level!

The webinar highlights:

  • Simple overview on LIBS, LA-ICP-MS and Tandem LA – LIBS and analytical advantages associated with each analytical technique
  • LA sampling approach for LIBS and LA-ICP-MS elemental imaging
  • How J200 Clarity software processes LIBS and LA-ICP-MS data
  • How Clarity Image Plus™ plots elemental maps and displays all LIBS and LA-ICP-MS spectra associated with any image pixel on the map
  • How to overlay multiple elemental maps on the sample image
  • Cluster and PCA analysis to understand correlation among elements and plot correlated elements
  • How to make your chemical maps beautiful and standout for best presentation
