Effect of laser polarization on molecular emission from femtosecond LIBS
J. Anal. At. Spectrom., 2022, Advance Article DOI: 10.1039/D1JA00308A, Technical NoteYutong Chen, Yitong Liu, Qiuyun Wang, Suyu Li, Yuanfei Jiang, Anmin Chen, Mingxing Jin The study indicates that the intensities of molecular emission bands under circular polarization in femtosecond LIBS are higher than those under linear polarization. The change becomes more evident as the laser energy increases. To cite this article before page numbers are assigned, use the DOI form of citation above.
