Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory

lab Picture

The University of Edinburgh's Terrestrial Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory produces samples for the measurement of cosmogenic isotopes by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and noble gas mass spectrometry. The lab is located in central Edinburgh near Old College in purpose-built laboratories, furbished in 2001.

Most activity focuses on 10Be and 26Al AMS targets from quartz samples, and 36Cl from whole-rock and mineral separates. The lab also produces mineral separates of olivine and clinopyroxene for measurement of He and Ne isotopes by noble gas mass spectrometry.
