Chemical analysis the way you want
We think that the tools you use should reflect the way you work, not the other way around. The LIBS Interaction Chamber lets you freely choose from all common LIBS modifications, such as Double-Pulsed LIBS, LIBS+LIFS, micro LIBS, LIBS in low pressure, and gives you space to add your own modifications.Learn more...
Easy and Speedy Chemical Analysis
LIBS technology is able to perform multi elemental analysis of most of the periodic table elements including those with low atomic weight. In a matter of seconds it can analyse samples of all states without the need for any special preparation be it solid, liquids or gas.See More Benefits
Remote and Environmentally Friendly Analysis When Required
It is not even necessary to bring the sample to the lab. You can bring the “lab” to the sample. It uses green and clean technology and is relatively simple to use in comparison to other techniques based on mass spectroscopy or utilising electron or ion beams.
Resources Thanks to a Strong Technology Base
AtomTrace has been founded as a startup from the Central European Institute of Technology (Brno, CZ) and strongly cooperates with this newly born centre in the fields of life sciences, advanced materials and technologies. We have long-term cooperation also with other institutions, such as Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Faculty of Science on Masaryk University.
What To Expect
Fast and easy, high-resolution high-sensitivity 2D or 3D mapping of chemical content, surface mapping, detection of thin layers and depth profiling.
We have know-how gained by 17 years of research and experiments, the applications of which have been published in various scientific journals including the Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy, Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy, Sensors, Optical Engineering and periodically presented at international conferences.Find Out More About Us
AtomTrace has been founded as a start-up from the Central European Institute of Technology in 2014 and since strongly cooperates with this newly born centre of the fields of life sciences, advanced materials and technologies. We have long-term cooperation also with other institutions, such as Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The main goal is the commercialisation of promising technologies that arise from research and development particularly in the field of material analysis by the LIBS technique.
Know-how is given by the years of research activities of the Laboratory of laser spectroscopy (Brno University of Technology) and the Laboratory of analytical chemistry (Masaryk University), which are specialised in LIBS methods since 1997.
The founding members come from these labs. Due to the strong binding to the Institute of Physical Engineering (BUT) and Institute of Machine and Industrial Design (BUT) the R&D team was always oriented also to the development of the LIBS instrumentation. So besides the LIBS researchers, the AtomTrace team includes also specialists on machine design, electronics and software development. Long-term cooperation with other institutes, such as the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, enables to include experts from related science fields.
Our experiences with the LIBS technique comes from more than 17 years of research and experiments. We are publishing our work concerning the LIBS (Double Pulse LIBS, LIBS+LIFS, Liquid LIBS, Stand-Off LIBS) and its applications in scientific journals (Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy, Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy, Sensors, Optical Engineering) and periodically presenting it on international conferences.
Prof. Jozef Kaiser
One of the AtomTrace founders and until now the head of the LIBS research laboratory at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of Brno University of Technology. Since 2011 he is the head of the Materials Characterization and Surface Science research group of CEITEC – Central European Institute of Technology, Brno University of Technology. He is currently engaged in research and development of spectroscopic techniques for trace detection of atomic and molecular species, X-ray microradiography and micro-CT. He has more than 20 years experiences with LIBS, published more than 60 LIBS related papers and had a number of LIBS oriented presentations. He also has several LIBS patents. Prof. Kaiser graduated from Brno University of Technology in 1997 and he received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the same institute in 2001. Since 2013 he is a full professor at Brno University of Technology.
Business Development Director
One of the AtomTrace founders, since 2011 the head of Technology Transfer Office at CEITEC – Central European Institute of Technology, Brno University of Technology. In 2012 together with prof. Kaiser successfully launched the rLIBS pre-seed project and then initiated, covered and finally delivered the AtomTrace establishment.
Tomáš Černohorský, Ph.D.
One of the AtomTrace founders and until now the head of the Laboratory of Atomic Spectroscopy at University of Pardubice. He is currently engaged in the development of new applications of spectroscopic techniques including LIBS; published more than 45 scientific papers related to the development of applications in Atomic Spectroscopy. He has also more than 20 years’ experience with sale of scientific instruments and creating of international sales networks (as sales director and CEO of Company RMI s.r.o.). Tomas Cernohorsky graduated from University of Pardubice in 1988 and he received his Ph.D. in Analytic Chemistry from the same University in 1992. Since 2012 he is an associated professor at University of Pardubice.
