Analytical laboratories

Our analytical laboratories are part of the Environmental, Mineralogical and Geophysical Laboratories at the Department of Geosciences and Geography (HelLabs).

Contact: Professor Christoph Beier, laboratory engineers Dr. Katie Doig and Dr. Juhani Virkanen

They faciliate modern instruments for geochemical analytic work such as electron microprobe analysis (EMPA), laser ablation - inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), wavelength dispersive X-ray spectrometry (WD-XRF), infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), fluid inclusion microthermometry and a wide range of sample preparation laboratories.
