  • What is Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)?

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy or LIBS is an analytical technique that's been used in laboratories for many years.  Most handheld LIBS analysers are used for fast sorting of alloys in scrap yards, and alloy identification and analysis in various applications within the metals industry. ...

  • Sample preparation is the key to quality analysis with a laser analyser

    Sample preparation is the most important step of any chemical analysis. To get the best results with any elemental alloy analyser regardless of the technology, the sample must be clean before taking a measurement. Otherwise the results are always compromised at least to some extent. The effect of dirty surfaces will vary and some technologies are more forgiving to sample surface conditions than ...

  • Featured Article on Laser Ablation Chemical Analysis – LIBS, LA-ICP-MS/OES, and LAMIS

    Laser ablation is a powerful approach to chemical analysis because of its versatility.  It has advantages in chemical analysis including direct characterization of solids, no chemical procedure of dissolution, which reduces the risk of contamination or sample loss, analysis of very small samples not separable from solution analysis, and determination of spatial distribution of elemental ...

  • New ways for Metal Recycling

    REWAVE XRF 3-way-sorting in innovative  “Free-Fall”-design Recycling of metal and aluminium knows no limits because it can be remelted as scrap indefinitely. Metals, however have to be separated from non-metallic impurities, and different metals have to be sorted in pure fractions to be used as secondary raw materials substituting primary resources. Especially when it ...
