Bruker Handheld LIBS EOS500

Handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (HH-LIBS)

A type of optical emission spectrometry where the emission is subsequent to the generation of a plasma induced by a laser

Handheld laser induced breakdown spectrometry (HH-LIBS) is an emerging method which shows promising capabilities for alloy analysis and may be able to complement HH-XRF in alloy analysis; especially in alloys containing low atomic number elements like Be, Li, Mg, Al and Si.  


Bruker's new EOS 500 is a handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (HH-LIBS) system. The EOS 500 is based on laser excitation of a metal sample followed by quantitative analysis of the light generated in the plume. This technology provides quick (3-5 sec) analysis of alloys including aluminum/titanium/magnesium alloys.
