Product Description

What is LIBS and how does it work?

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy is an analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of materials. Handheld LIBS analyzers work by using a high-focused laser to ablate the surface of a sample. A plasma is formed consisting of electronically excited atoms and ions. As these atoms decay back into their ground states, they emit characteristic wavelengths of light, or “unique fingerprints”. These “fingerprints” are distinct for each element, making handheld LIBS analysis an excellent tool for quantitative and qualitative measurements.
Modes / analytical range of Niton Apollo handheld LIBS analyser

Stainless Steel: C, Al, Si, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Co, Ni, Cu, Nb, Mo, W
Low Alloy / Carbon Steel: C, Al, Si, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Ni, Cu, Mo, W

Confidently perform elemental analysis with the Thermo Scientific Niton Apollo handheld LIBS analyzer. When carbon detection and mobility are top of mind, industrial businesses rely on the Niton Apollo for superior performance and enhanced productivity. Identify low alloy/ carbon steels and L and H grade steels. The Niton Apollo transforms a traditional cart-mounted Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) system into a highly portable, easy to use handheld analyzer.
