Abstract

A kinetic model to predict the relative intensities of the atomic C/H/N/O emission lines in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has been developed for organic compounds. The model includes a comprehensive set of chemical processes involving both neutral and ionic chemistry and physical excitation and de-excitation of atomic levels affecting the neutral, ionic, and excited-state species concentrations. The relative excited-state atom concentrations predicted by this modeling are compared with those derived from the observed LIBS intensities for 355 ‚ÄČ nm ns laser irradiation of residues of two organic compounds on aluminum substrate. The model reasonably predicts the relative excited-state concentrations, as well as their time profiles. Comparison of measured and computed concentrations has also allowed an estimation of the degree of air entrainment.
