Sensitive High Resolution Ion Microprobe (SHRIMP)

The Sensitive High Resolution Ion MicroProbe (SHRIMP) uses a focused high-energy ion beam to sputter erode samples. Some of the material coming from the surface becomes ionized and this can be extracted electrostatically into a mass spectrometer. The...

Multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (solution and laser ablation)

The Neptune Multicollector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS) combines the ability of the inductively-coupled plasma to efficiently ionise most elements, with the precision isotope ratio measurement of a multicollector mass...
