Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has the capability to perform rapid, online and real time analysis of materials in difficult and harsh environmental conditions. The application of LIBS, as a multi metal continuous emission monitor for off gases, in the analysis of soil and nuclear waste, is presented.
