29 May 2013 Discrimination methodologies using femtosecond LIBS and correlation techniques

Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy is an attractive and versatile spectroscopic technique employed successfully for the detection of hazardous substances. The specific advantages of using femtosecond (fs) pulses with LIBS technique include lower ablation threshold, reduced background Continuum emission. In addition to atomic peaks in plasma the molecular peaks (CN and C2) also play a significant role in classification of these samples. In the present work fs LIBS spectra were recorded from five different samples (RDX, HMX, NTO, ANTA, and DADNE) made in the form of pure pellets. Correlation statistics were used to discriminate the samples based on molecular, atomic ratios. This paper discusses, in detail, a simple correlation technique applied for the fs LIBS data for achieving classification.
