Every element with high sensitivity to light elements including H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na
High resolution down to 50 μm
High speed at 40 sec/cm2
Low operating costs at ambient temperature and pressure
No sample preparation accomodating a surface roughness of 6 mm
The ultimate innovation in geological core analysis providing high-speed and high-resolution mineralogy by element mapping. It is micro analysis with speeds faster than any other analytical method for element or mineral analysis
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) analyses the whole periodic table including elements that are invisible to ambient X-ray technology such as H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na. The sensitivity is from trace (sub-ppm) to percent concentrations and this ensures accurate mapping so alteration minerals with slight changes in chemisty can be clearly defined for geological studies.
The MISSION : CORIOSITY requires no sample preparation and will analyse diverse samples with a surface height variation of 6 mm. Analysis is conducted at room temperature and pressure. No additional gases are required.
At a 50 μm high resolution the full surface is analysed for every element in 40 sec/cm2. A lower resolution analysis offers higher speeds of 10 sec/cm2.
The only benchtop core analyser offering ALL the elements, high speed AND high resolution.
ADVANTAGES OF LIBS Laser-Induced Breakdown (Atomic Emission) Spectrometry (LIBS) analysis is, by far, the fastest technology with 50 µm spatial resolution currently on the market. The reasons for this include:
Precision: Resolution between 50 to 100 µm can be achieved on a routine basis
Versatility: Analysis of any metal and any non-conducting material in many shapes and forms
Adaptability: Accommodates sample roughness up to 4 mm
Speed: Real time analysis at 40 sec/cm 2 at the highest resolution
Range: From trace (sub-ppm) to percent concentration levels
Accuracy: Certified type standards – accuracy nominally better than 1% relative
Simplicity: No sample preparation required
Savings: Rapid Return on Investment (ROI) and low operating costs
