A Computer-Controlled In Situ Analysis Instrument Based on Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy
A portable LIBS device capable of analyzing material component especially for drilling fluids in the drilling site was designed and assembled. A position adjustable apparatus was developed, which permits the applications in outdoor environments. The alkali metal elements such as potassium (K), calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al), have been detected in the drilling fluids using the newly developed portable LIBS device. The results show that the device well performs qualitative analysis, and also has potential predominance for the quantitative analysis in-situ.
