U-Pb dating of accessory minerals by conventional ID-TIMS and in-situ U-Th-Pb dating by laser-ablation MC-ICP-MS
The following U-Pb dating and isotope geochemical techniques are used in our laboratory:
- U-Pb dating of single zircons, monazite, xenotime, sphene, etc. using conventional digestion and ion-exchange procedures.
- U-Pb dating of bisected single zircons using a step-wise vapour digestion technique (in combination with cathodoluminescence and back-scattered-electron imaging).
- Whole rock and feldspar Pb isotope geochemistry using conventional digestion and ion-exchange procedures
- In-situ U/Pb and Th/Pb dating by laser-ablation MC-ICP-MS
