Author Affiliations +
Abstract
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is an emerging, minimally-destructive sensor technology for in-situ, real-time chemical species identification and analysis. The Army Research Laboratory has been engaged in LIBS analysis for over a decade and recently has been investigating the potential to apply broadband LIBS analysis to specific military problems, one of which is as a handheld, confirmatory sensor for landmine detection. Laboratory tests with a prototype man-portable LIBS system demonstrate a high degree of success in identifying landmine casings.
