Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) offers many attractive analytical advantages with respect to other techniques for the mining industry. LIBS can detect elements from H – Pu, which includes non-metals, such as H, N, F, and O, along with high sensitivity for lighter elements (B, Li, C, K, Ca, Mg, Al, Si, etc.)
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) offers the ability to analyze plant samples with little to no sample preparation, provides detection of all elements in the periodic table, and has a large dynamic range (ppm to wt. %).

For steel analysis, LIBS is ideal for rapid QC (quantitative analysis and detection of contaminants) for raw materials in production, and to check the elemental composition of finished products. LIBS also offers the ability to analyze slag samples that can lead to the recovery of precious metals lost in the steel production process.
This technical note highlights the ability of Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to perform depth-profiling analysis of key elements that represent the chemical makeup of important Li-ion battery components.
