Exploring LIBS Precision Under Different Atmospheres

In our ongoing pursuit of excellence, we often find that even small details can spark significant insights. Recently, as part of training new talents at our company, we conducted a comparison of measurements under different atmospheres – at atmospheric pressure, in a vacuum, and in argon.

The results, summarized in the table below, offer valuable insights into the adaptability and precision of LIBS measurements in diverse environments. Measurements in an argon or vacuum atmosphere are roughly four times more stable than measurements in an ambient atmosphere. Additionally, measurements in an argon-filled chamber are slightly more stable than in a vacuum.

Coincidentally, as we delved into this experiment, a pertinent question arose from a potential customer. We’re sharing these results, not because they’re groundbreaking, but because we think they could be helpful for someone in their work. Take a look and see if they can benefit your own endeavors.

Achieve enhanced precision and stability in your measurements by incorporating our interaction vacuum chamber or vacuum capsule. These components not only give you the opportunity to detect elements in your samples that are present in ambient atmosphere (C,N,O,H) but are instrumental in ensuring reliable results and lower the LODs.

Whether you’re a seasoned researcher or an industry professional, AtomTrace stands as your reliable partner in advancing LIBS technology. For further details or to explore how our products can complement your endeavors, please feel free to reach out.
