Presented at PICALO 2008

The development of laser device for in-situ elemental determination in human skin is presented. By using Er:YAG laser element, emitting 0.5 J energy pulses at 2,94 nm wavelength, its possible to generate an strong emitting plasma. By reading the plasma emission thorough a compact spectrometer, its possible to determine the presence of elements as Pb. The device also permits to get a blood sample making a perforation of skin without mechanical contact. The new design contents a light wall with interruption by sample activate the laser shoot.
