In this work, emission signals of laser-induced breakdown (LIBS) plasma of a flowing liquid jet in the absence and presence of an air-supported glow discharge have been investigated. In combination with a needle-to-needle glow discharge, a Q-switched neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser (1064 nm, 5 ns) with power density ∼1010 W/cm2 was used to generate a plasma from a liquid jet. Emission lines of Mg, Ca, Al, Li, Na, and K all showed significant enhancements in the presence of the glow discharge. Read More
