22 January 1999 Application of LIBS to in-situ assessment of metal-contaminated soils
Author Affiliations +
In this communication, we discuss the development of a fiber optic probe for use in field screening of waste sites that are contaminated with heavy metals. The prove, which is deployed via cone penetrometer truck, uses the principle of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy to gather qualitative and quantitative about metal contamination in-situ.
