Lab for Laser-Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS)

Published: 25 September 2014

The Laser-Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) laboratory at LTU was established 2015-2016, and is jointly owned by the divisions of Geosciences and Environmental Engineering and Minerals and Metallurgical Engineering.

Laser-ablation ICP-MS is a state of the art technology which is being extensively used to study features such as trace-element zonation in pyrite crystals from various ore systems, and U–Th–Pb isotope dating of mineralization.

The technique is outstanding when it comes to measuring the in-situ concentration of trace elements, an application of growing importance as it becomes more essential to document the distribution and abundance of critical metals in ores. It was in hopes of being able to undertake just such studies in-house that prompted LTU to establish this new laboratory in 2015.

 

The lab for Laser-ablation ICP-MS is closely associated with the lab for scanning electron microscopy.
