Generate Sparks in Air in less than 5 minutes ...

... (from unpacking) with a MONTFORT M-NANO Nanosecond Laser.  See the video here how easy it is to generate such sparks in now time!

The laser beam from a standard M-NANO propagates through a normal lens and forms a spark in air.  This capability of making sparks in virtually any medium, including gases, liquids and solid materials, is used in LIBS - Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy - and enables fast and precise elemental analysis used in various applications ranging from contamination analysis, industrial process analysis, debris analysis, food analysis, etc etc.
