Laser-induced plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (LIBS) which is a less costly and simple to implement, technique is starting to prevail in qualitative and quantitative analyses of the various elements of the periodic system. She is based on the interaction of a laser pulse that only lasts a few nanoseconds with the material to be analyzed. LIBS technology has several advantages such as its situ use, it speeds in carrying out analyses in real time, the use of samples without prior treatment, analysis of minute quantitative of samples. She may be portable for use in any space without contact with the sample reason she was on board the Discovery robot for ground exploration Martian. She entered several fields of research such as medicine, agronomy, nuclear research, biology, the food industry, the research archeological, space research, in the pharmaceutical field, in mineralogy for determination of minerals and environment for monitoring pollution of metallic trace elements (MTE) in soil, water and air. LIBS work on all kinds of materials in solid, liquid, or gaseous state.
