Rapid Measurement of Total Organic Carbon in Soil Using SciAps Z-300 Handheld LIBS

  • SciAps Z300 LIBS total organic carbon in soils

    This application note demonstrates how the SciAps Z-300 handheld LIBS analyser can be used to measure the total organic carbon content of soils. The handheld form factor makes it ideal for field work negating the need to bring samples back to the and then process them.

    Furthermore, the findings presented herein represent an exciting new opportunity in soil analysis; without the need for spectral soil libraries, chemical pre-treatment, or lab conditions, SOC can be measured rapidly with the SciAps handheld LIBS.
