This paper presents R&D activities to explore new laser parameter ranges in pulse energy, time and space for laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy. The collinear double pulse effect, which is well studied for pulses of typically several 100 mJ energy can also be observed for laser pulses having a pulse energy two orders of magnitude lower. In this case, maximum line emission intensity occurs at interpulse separations of a few 100 ns. Temporal pulse tailoring to improve the performance of LIBS is only a first step. A comprehensive approach includes spatial pulse shaping to generate craters with predefined shape or to improve spatial averaging for the analysis of inhomogeneous samples. High performance components for LIBS systems such as spectrometers, electronics and sample stands are required to enable industrial applications. Latest developments offer wide-band single spectra acquisition with a high spectral resolution at a measuring frequency of up to 500 Hz. The next generation of multi-channel integrator electronics for Paschen-Runge spectrometers equipped with PMT detectors will further push the measuring speed to up to 5 kHz, thus opening a new area of high-speed LIBS microanalysis. Novel LIBS devices for various industrial applications presented include analysis of metallic process control samples with scale layers, on-site analysis of stag samples in secondary metallurgy, high-speed identification of Al scrap, mix-up detection of pipe fittings as well as recent work towards in-process identification of hot coils in a rolling mill.
