This study demonstrates a successful application of a simple LIBS setup for tissue differentiation under ex-vivo conditions by monitoring the intensity ratios of atomic emissions lines from the plasma plume created during laser tissue ablation. This study concludes that variation in spectral lines and intensity ratios of specific elements among different tissue types can be used for the qualitative and precise identification of tissue types for tissue specific laser surgery application.
