ELEMENTAL / ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS


  • Routine major and trace element analysis of sediments, rocks, soils, ores, and oils using WD-XRF spectrometry.
  • High precision, qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis.
  • Simple preparation with samples normally analysed as fused glass discs, pressed powders, thin-films or liquids.
  • Measurement of major and trace element concentrations and isotopic ratios using ICPOES and ICPMS through close affiliations with other expert groups within the University of Southampton.
  • High precision isotopic analysis (e.g. U and Pu isotopes).
