Isotope Geochemistry, Geochronology and Thermochronology

About Us

  • Radiogenic and heavy stable isotope geochemistry
  • High-precision U-Pb geochronology
  • Low and high-temperature thermochronology

 


NEWS:

Luis F. de Lena defended his PhD thesis successfully on November 20, and his manuscript on early Jurassic climate variations got accepted by Scientific Reports. Congratulations ti Luis for both!

Argon geochronology laboratory: Our new HELIX high-resolution gas mass spectrometer (ThermoFisher Scientific) has arrived and is getting installed. 

The TRITON TIMS has a brand new Turbo pump at the source, the source vacuum is better than ever!

We hope to solve the amplifier problem on the Phoenix TIMS in nearest future, too.
