Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy in water
AbstractPreliminary experimental results are reported on the temporal characteristics of laser spark emission spectra. Sparks were generated in water by the focused beam of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser Na and Cu aqueous solutions exhibited fluorescence signal on the decaying edge of plasma emission at their respective characteristic resonance lines. Potential of the laser plasma spectroscopy for in-situ pollution monitoring in natural and wastewater is briefly discussed.
