The LIBS-ELITE is a fully integrated laser-induced breakdown spectrometer platform that provides real-time, high-resolution spectral analysis of elements in a variety of materials. The high-speed system offers unparalleled sample imaging and position control.
The LIBS-ELITE can be used in applications that range from education to environmental sampling to forensic sample testing.
The LIBS-ELITE can be used with Ocean Optics LIBS2000+ Spectrometers to provide real-time, high-resolution qualitative analysis of trace elements in diverse materials such as metals, biological tissues, soils, optics, semiconductors, gems and other geological, biological and environmental specimens.

The LIBS-ELITE houses Ocean Optics LIBS2000+ Spectrometers (sold separately) in the New Wave Research Universal Platform (UP) Ablation Chamber to offer numerous configuration options and precise sample position control. The system’s features include a high-power 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser, sample mapping and targeting functions, precise X-Y sample positioning, laser spot diameter control from 20 µm to 1200 µm, high-resolution sample magnification, and a sample chamber with a gas purge for increased sensitivity.
Sample Chamber: Unprecedented Control
The open architecture of the sample chamber allows the sample and ablation plume to be easily viewed through its Class 1 shield. The sample chamber includes a quick-loading sample drawer, and can accommodate samples up to 4 inches in diameter. A gas port on the rear of the housing enables the chamber to be purged with Argon, which is useful for increasing sampling sensitivity, or with nitrogen or helium, which is useful when measuring emissions of elements like oxygen that are found in ambient environments. An integrated rotometer regulates the gas flow in the chamber
