RAMAN-LIBS paper published
Recently a publication of our colleagues Virgina Merk, Wolfgang Werncke and Lutz Pfeifer was published in “Analyst” by Royal Society of Chemistry.
Our RAMAN-LIBS research group investigated the cross-sections of multilayer automotive paint samples. Using both techniques in our CORALIS system, LIBS with a nanosecond high-energy pulse and Raman with a cw-laser, access the elemental as well as the molecular information and composition. Due to the possibility to perform both measurements subsequently at the same measurement points, a comprehensive picture of every layer is given. The approach can be a good additional option to established techniques for forensic investigations of automotive paint samples.
