Custom designed systems
Where quick elemental analysis is desired, the LIBS technique can save time, money and material resources.
Wide spectrum of industrial fields can benefit from the LIBS technology. From laboratory LIBS systems, in-situ compact LIBS instruments or stand-off systems capable of material analysis at the distance of units of meters.
- Depth profiling of multilayer materials
- Quality control of input / output materials
- Chemical mapping of heterogenic materials
- Detection of metallic / heavy / toxic elements
- Material sorting
R&D team of Lightigo, in close cooperation with Laboratory of Laser Spectroscopy on CEITEC BUT is capable of custom development of the LIBS systems based on customer’s needs.
TECHNOLOGY | Principles of LIBS
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy
Pulsed laser is used as an excitation energy carrier. Laser irradiance value of more than hundreds of GW per square cm evaporates* and ionizes small amount of target material.
Microplasma is created …
Atomic Emission Spectroscopy
Cooling microplasma radiates spectrum of wavelengths (atomic emission lines), which are characteristic for each individual chemical element present.
Quantitative and qualitative analysis is performed.
*) Stands for nanosecond laser pulses. In a case of ultrashort laser pulses (ps and fs), a non-thermal (cold) ablation occurs.
Who is Lightigo?
Lightigo s.r.o. is a start-up company focused on the development and production of the analytical instruments for the Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, one of today’s most promising technique of elemental analysis.
Lightigo was founded in August 2019 by the researchers and hardware developers who have the long-term experience with the R&D in the field of LIBS. The ownership of the company is fully in the hands of the core R&D team.
“Our Mission is to introduce the benefits of LIBS to the market in the form of analytical instruments designed with the accent on the high performance, stability and user experience.“
