Abstract

We will discuss a unique spectrometer based on an array of Geiger photodiodes resulting in enhanced performance of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy instrumentation. These compact, silicon-based detectors eliminate the need for post amplification electronics and allow detection of single photons at room temperature.
