Analytical control of liquid steel in an induction melting furnace using a remote laser induced plasma spectrometer S. Palanco, S. Conesa, J.J. Laserna Steel ICCD Not Known
Laser: Nd:YAG
Gate Delay: Noneus
Gate Width: Noneus
LIBS is performed on molten steel using effectively a StandOff LIBS rig. Analysis distance was ~5m Authors note that the intensity of the spectra increases with increasing steel temperature. Their investigations indicate that both plasma temperature increases and higher ablated mass contribute to this effect
