Development of inclusion reference materials and simultaneous determination of metals and non-metallic inclusions by rapid libs analysis in steel samples

Objective

Fast and thorough analysis of steel samples during the process of steel making would enable better process control.

The project will provide new reference materials with well-defined inclusion population, and a technique based on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy to provide fast and simultaneous analysis of the steel matrix and the non-metallic inclusions.

The objectives are to:
- Develop a robust method to produce reference materials with a well-defined inclusion population, and produce sets of such reference materials,
- Improve LIBS as a fast analytical technique for rapid and simultaneous analysis of trace elements in steel and characterisation of the inclusion population.
