Bulk material samples are poured into the laser scanning system.
After the sample is charged into the material feed hopper, the laser is activated. The laser hits the materials flowing through the material flow chute ablation a small mass and releasing light in the process.
Light emitted from the excited atoms is transported through optical fibers to a spectrometer for wavelength and intensity resolution.
Collected light is resolved into unique wavelength and intensity patterns that are modeled using multivariate modeling techniques; and these models are subsequently used to identify unknown materials.
