The calibration-free laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (CF-LIBS) and its variations are low cost, short time consumption, and high adaptability. However, seeking a more flexible and simple quantitative analysis method remains a challenge. A one-point and multi-line calibration (OP-MLC) was presented as a simple quantitative analysis method of LIBS. The results showed that OP-MLC-LIBS method can achieve quantitative analysis using only one standard sample, and the average relative errors (AREs) are 9, 22, 21 and 36% for Mn, Cr, Ni and Ti elements in six tested low-alloy steel samples, respectively. The method requires neither a large number of standard samples nor complicated calculations, which provides a flexible and low-cost quantitative analysis approach for development and application of LIBS.
