Title: Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) probe for simplified light collection and laser operation

Abstract

A Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) probe using a dove prism for the laser media. The use of a dove prism allows for the removal of two mirrors over prior art schemes. The use of the dove prism allows for the light from the spark to be analyzed from the return path.
