Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry

Used for the determination of major, minor, and trace element constituents in rock, mineral, and water samples.

  • Element 2 ICP-Mass Spectrometer

The Element-2 (Thermo-Finnigan) multi-resolution, single collector, magnetic sector plasma mass spectrometer is capable of operating at resolutions of >10,000 and is used for both in-situ and solution-based

  • Nu Plasma ICP-Mass Spectrometer

The Nu Plasma (Nu Instruments) is a double focusing plasma mass spectrometer equipped with 13 collectors in a configuration designed to optimize U-Pb geochronologic applications. The instrument is integrated with a New Wave UP-213 solid state laser ablation system for in-situ isotopic analyses.

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.
