A numerical study of expected accuracy and precision in Calibration-Free Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy in the assumption of ideal analytical plasma [Al Alloy] Elisabetta Tognoni, Gabriele Cristoforetti, S. Legnaioli, V. Palleschi, A. Salvetti, M. Mueller, U. Panne , I. Gornushkin Aluminium Alloy MODI (MObile Dual-pulse Instrument) MODI (MObile Dual-pulse Instrument)

Gate Delay: 2.000us
Gate Width: 1.000us
While the paper is primarily about estimating the effect of various parameters (intensity fluctuations, electron density variations, spectra efficiency corrections and partition function values) on the accuracy of Calibration Free LIBS, the authors also include some experimental data on a Fe/Mn alloy and an Aluminium based alloy.
