SPECTROMETER DETECTS CHEMICALS BY ZAPPING SAMPLES WITH A LASER BEAM

Here at Hackaday, we love projects that result in useful lab equipment for a fraction of the cost of professional gear. [Lorenz], over at Advanced Tinkering, built his own instrument for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, or LIBS, and it’s quite an impressive device. LIBS is a technique for analyzing substances to find their chemical composition. Basically, the …

PI-BASED SPECTROMETER PUTS THE COMPLEXITY IN THE SOFTWARE

Play around with optics long enough and sooner or later you’re probably going to want a spectrometer. Optical instruments are famously expensive, though, at least for high-quality units. But a useful spectrometer, like this DIY Raspberry Pi-based instrument, doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank. This one comes to us by way of [Les Wright], whose homebrew …
