How does it work ?
Laser and optics
•The Vulcan has a pulsing, miniature diode, solid state passively, Q-switched laser.
•The laser head is encased with the light collection optics in a small aluminium housing on a rotating platform.

•Each laser pulse hits the sample surface causing a tiny amount of the sample to be ejected.
•Plasma formed with temps of 10 000ºC at the sample surface.
•In the plasma the sample is energized forming atomic and ionic species of elements in the sample. •Each element emits light with characteristic wavelengths.
