LIBS Analyzers (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy)

API 578 has included portable LIBS as a technology for PMI besides OES and handheld XRF. LIBS is a fast, easy to use handheld format, ideal for the identification of different types of alloys. There are no x-rays as it uses a focused laser pulse to hit the sample surface, removing only a very small amount of material for analysis leaving a hardly visible burn mark on the measured surface.
