Abstract

In order to obtain stable spectral data of copper plasma, a detection platform of polarization-resolved laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (PRLIBS) was built. The PRLIBS characteristic function of copper was constructed by combining the spectral path of plasma discrete spectrum and contact spectrum. The system can not only measure the original data, but also obtain the polarization information in the spectral data. By analyzing the extraction method of spatial polarized light information, the characteristic model of S-wave intensity information in PRLIBS was derived. The results show that in the decay process of plasma energy, the anisotropy of plasma recombination under local thermal equilibrium makes the number of deflected particles of atoms and electrons different in unit time, which leads to the polarization of radiation. The polarization characteristics of the plasma spectrum decreased with the increase of laser energy density. The S-wave was very active, and the polarization of continuous media was much stronger than that of discrete line emission. The advantages were helpful to obtain more stable characteristic peak signals. As a plasma element identification method, PRLIBS makes up for the deficiency of plasma detection technology, and can provide a scientific basis for the safety and non-destructive detection of heavy metals.
