Noble Gas Laboratory

The 40Ar/39Ar dating facility features a MAP215-50 noble gas mass spectrometer, with two electron multipliers and one faraday collector. The mass spectrometer is connected to a custom, automated stainless steel extraction/purification line with sample heating and gas extraction accomplished with either a Modifications Ltd. resistance furnace, CO2 IR laser, or pulsed Excimer DUV (193 nm) laser. Our system is designed for both geochronology and thermochronology.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
