LIBS 2008 - 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

Together with ISAS (Institute of Analytical Sciences), BAM is organising LIBS 2008 - the 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy in the Berlin-Adlershof between 22 and 26 September.

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy is a versatile method for the multi-element analysis of solid, liquid or gaseous samples in environmental and process analysis. In this method an intensive, pulsed laser is focused on the sample to be tested so that a part of the sample evaporates and is atomised and/or ionized in the developed plasma.

The elemental composition can be determined with the help of characteristic emission lines. Since no sample preparation is necessary and direct or fibre-optic remote sensing is possible, LIBS is of interest for a number of on-line and in-situ monitoring tasks.

The highlights of the conference in Berlin will include new results in the field of LIBS fundamentals, instrumentation and applications in process analysis, environmental sciences as well as research in safety engineering. The conference will address scientists and engineers from all over the world who deal with analytical chemistry, process analysis and laser ablation. The scientific programme covers lectures and workshops as well as an accompanying exhibition.

The conference will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Panne, Head of the BAM Department I Analytical Chemistry, Reference Materials. The scientific committee is composed of scientists from Germany, France, Greece, Great Britain, Italy and Spain, from Australia, Egypt, Israel, Japan, Canada and the USA.

Date: LIBS 2008 - 5th International Conference on Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Berlin-Adlershof, 22 26 September 2008

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
