Elemental Mapping of Printed Ink Using LA-LIBS Instrument in Combination with ICP-MS

The J200 Tandem LA-LIBS system provides the unique capability of combining the analytical benefits of both LA-ICP-MS (Laser Ablation-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry) and LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy). Specifically, LIBS provides greater elemental coverage from H – Pu, including elements that are difficult or impossible by conventional ICP-MS instrument such as non-metals (e.g. H, N, O), and halogens (e.g. F). When coupled with ICPMS, it can perform LA-ICP-MS measurements focusing on trace elemental and isotopic ratio compositions from sub-ppb levels with LA-ICP-MS, to % levels with LIBS. The ability to determine the elemental distribution in a given sample can be very valuable for manufacturing, failure analysis, and/or quality control in an industrial environment.
