Abstract

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is well recognized as a promising tool for in situ/remote elemental analysis of environmental, archeological, clinical, and hazardous samples. With the aim of quantifying trace elements in such samples, using LIBS technique, an echelle spectrograph-ICCD system with high sensitivity and good resolution has been assembled. Various important parameters of this system were studied and optimized. Conditions for getting good quality LIBS spectra and signal for multielemental analysis have been achieved, and these are discussed and illustrated in this paper.
