Renovations on our new LA-ICP-MS laboratory space are underway! This lab will be used for trace-element analysis and U–Pb petrochronology of rocks and minerals.

Renovations are expected to be complete in February 2020. During the spring of 2020, we will install a 193nm excimer laser and a quadrupole ICP-MS. Once that is completed, we will begin acquisition of a MC-ICP-MS for higher-precision analysis. Stay tuned!
