A new approach to the quantitative elemental analysis of alloys by means of the laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is proposed and justified. The proposed correction taking into account the Prokhorov-Bunkin melt transparency wave ensures a good agreement between the relative intensities of LIBS analytical lines [(nm): Cu, 511; Zn, 472; Sn, 286; Pb, 406] and the alloy stoichiometry for five samples of bronze measured in various regimes of plasma excitation and signal detection. © 2005 Pleiades Publishing, Inc.
