Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)

LIBS is a micro-destructive technique that gives depth-resolved elemental composition. The in-house developed LIBS system can operate at remote stand-off distances up to 15m. 

Application:

  • Layer by layer elemental identification of works of art, archaeological artefacts and architectural monuments.
