Spectroscopic analysis of coal plasma emission produced by laser ablation

Keywords: Laser ablation, Laser Induced Plasma Spectroscopy (LIPS), Optical Emission Spectroscopy (EOS), coal

Abstract

An analysis of plasma produced by laser ablation using 1,064 nm of laser radiation from a Q-switched Nd:YAG on coal mineral samples under air ambient, was performed. The emission of molecular band systems such as C2 Swan System , the First Negative System N2 (Band head at 501.53 nm) and different emission lines were investigated using the optical emission spectroscopy technique. The C2 molecular spectra (Swan band) were analyzed to determine vibrational temperature (0.62 eV). The density and electron temperature of the plasma have been evaluated using Stark broadening and the intensity of the nitrogen emission lines (N II). Values of 1.2 eV of electron temperature and 1.82×1019 cm-3 of electron density were found.
