We offer advise on what is possible, and the best way to attain the best results.
We can facilitate the following procedures as necessary:
- Collecting the rock sample
- Microstructural analysis
- Microchemical analysis
- 40Ar/39Ar analysis of the grains
- Interpretation of analysis
- Modelling of diffusion experiments
- Publication material or full reports as required or discussed
We specialise in 40Ar/39Ar furnace step heating and/or laser fusion of a variety of rocks and minerals, including amphiboles, biotites, fuschite, white micas (phengite, muscovite), feldspars (K-feldspars, plagioclase). We also work with whole-rock materials, typically extrusive volcanic rocks if a project necessitates it.
