AtomTrace has been founded as a start-up from the Central European Institute of Technology in 2014 and since strongly cooperates with this newly born center of the fields of life sciences, advanced materials and technologies. We have long-term cooperation also with other institutions, such as Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The main goal is the commercialization of promising technologies that arise from research and development particularly in the field of material analysis by the LIBS technique.
Know-how is given by the years of research activities of the Laboratory of laser spectroscopy (Brno University of Technology) and the Laboratory of analytical chemistry (Masaryk University), which are specialized in LIBS methods since 1997.
The founding members come from these labs. Due to the strong binding to the Institute of Physical Engineering (BUT) and Institute of Machine and Industrial Design (BUT) the R&D team was always oriented also to the development of the LIBS instrumentation. So besides the LIBS researchers, the AtomTrace team includes also specialists on machine design, electronics and software development. Long-term cooperation with other institutes, such as the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, enables to include experts from related science fields.
Our experiences with the LIBS technique comes from more than 17 years of research and experiments. We are publishing our work concerning the LIBS (Double Pulse LIBS, LIBS+LIFS, Liquid LIBS, Stand-Off LIBS) and its applications in scientific journals (Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectroscopy, Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy, Sensors, Optical Engineering) and periodically presenting it on international conferences.

In this interview, AZoOptics talks to Davis Bowling, who provides guidance into extended reality (XR) optical testing and demonstrates how to optimize the testing process.
AZoOptics speaks to Jan Novotný, one of the founding members of Lightigo, about the significance of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) in the elemental analysis field. Discussing Lightigo's rapid technology, Novotný discusses the latest trends in LIBS technology and its many benefits in several applications.
