Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology for metal and nonmetallic detection accuracy is the key technology to be solved in LIBS measurement, Due to metal elements and non-metallic elements in the lively, atomic structure and the degree of excitation of the laser are totally different, so the laser induced plasma evolution and spectral intensity are absolutely different. Among the many factors that affect measurement accuracy, the single and double pulse of the laser has a great influence on the measurement accuracy of metal and non-metal, they both have their own advantages, but also have their own shortcomings. In order to compare the effect of SP-LIBS and DP-LIBS on the measurement results of different elements, in this experiment, we put the metal element aluminum and non-metallic element carbon as the sample, the laser energy as a variable, using the high-speed camera shooting SP- LIBS and DP- LIBS plasma images. Using the spectral analyzer to record the spectral intensity of the elements, by calculating the relative RSD of the signal intensity and comparing the spectral intensity and the signal stability for different elements, develop an optimized experimental program. The experimental results show that under the same energy condition, the metal aluminum ion image under the DP- LIBS and the non-metallic carbon ion image under the SP- LIBS are the most suitable images. By considering the stability of the line intensity and the signal stability, we find that the sensitivity and stability of the signal strength of the metal elements under the double pulse are better than that of the single pulse, and for the non-metallic element, the single pulse laser is better than the double pulse.
