LIBS Info:

To make the complex, a little easier!

Welcome to LIBS Info

It has always frustrated me how difficult it was to find resources related to Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS). This site aims to address this.
That way, the "learning curve" for novices isn't so steep and experts can have all their needs in the one place.

  • Analysis: Provides links to useful papers [ at last count], detection limits and spectra.
  • Understanding: Gives detailed explanations and answers the FAQs
