Abstract:

The dependence of limit of detection of Mg, Mn, Sr, Pb, Al, and B in aqueous solutions by femtosecond laser induced breakdown spectroscopy on the laser pulse repetition rate is studied. It is shown that at pulse repetition rates from 50 to 1000 Hz and under the same other experimental conditions, the best limits of detection for all elements are achieved at a laser pulse repetition rate of 166 Hz.

Keywords:

femtosecond libs, laser repetition rate, limit of detection, liquid analysis
