This instrument is developed by the laboratory of Laser spectroscopy together with a start-up Lightigo.


LIBS Discovery

Discovery is a laboratory LIBS research setup consisting of an instrumentation cabinet and the LIBS Interaction Chamber mounted on an optical breadboard. Cabinet provides space for multiple shelves with LIBS instrumentation (laser head, spectrometers, power meters, calibration lamps, etc.) and rack-compatible components (control electronics, PC, laser PSU, etc.).

LIBS Scout

LIBS Scout is an analytical instrument based on LIBS. It has been designed as an affordable and compact system. Despite that, it is equipped with a smart selection of features, which enables you to apply key benefits of LIBS in elemental analysis application. Scout was developed for Plastic Cluster and commercialized by Lightigo.
