Open-path laser-induced plasma spectrometry (OP-LIPS) represents an appealing alternative for the real-time monitoring of high-temperature processes due to its inherent non-invasive and remote capabilities. In this work, stainless steel samples have been analyzed at 10 meters from the laser source. The effect of the high-temperature conditions to the protective anti-corrosion layer have been analyzed, as well as additional factors such as the type of steel and the exposure time. The number of pulses required to ablate the alteration layer has been found to follow a linear relationship with the square root of the exposure time, in excellent agreement with the off-line thermogravimetric measurements described in the literature.
