Abstract

To estimate the acoustic plasma energy in laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) experiments, a light collecting and acoustic sensing device based on a coil of plastic optical fiber (POF) is proposed. The speckle perturbation induced by the plasma acoustic energy was monitored using a CCD camera placed at the end of a coil of multimode POF and processed with an intraimage contrast ratio method. The results were successfully verified with the acoustic energy measured by a reference microphone. The proposed device is useful for normalizing LIBS spectra, enabling a better estimation of the sample’s chemical composition.
