The laboratory of Laser Spectroscopy is a part of the CEITEC Nano Research Infrastructure. It belongs to the research group of Advanced Instrumentation and Methods for Materials Characterization (RG1-6) at the Central European Institute of Technology Brno University of Technology (CEITEC BUT).

Our field of study is Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS). We follow up with the 20 years of tradition in interdisciplinary research and development, combining engineering, analytical chemistry, statistics, and now even biology. Our long-term commitment is encouraged by the high-quality and motivating environment of CEITEC where we have the opportunity to carry out our specific research. Our common goal is to provide researchers with high-end state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Our primary research aims at providing the elemental analysis of investigated samples. This elemental analysis is mainly used in the elemental mapping which enables a valuable perspective in the understanding of the material itself, ranging from geological to biological samples.
