Print Icon Stable Isotope Laboratory

Stable Isotope Laboratory carries out studies on Stable Isotopes (C, O, N and S),  in geological samples (rocks and minerals) using Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS). Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (Horizon NH031) is a gas-source mass spectrometer for determination of isotopic ratio and has three sample preparation systems viz. Nu Carb-DI for the analyses of isotopic ratios in carbonates (C and O), Elemental Analyser(EA) for sulphides /organic matter (S, N and C) and Laser Fluorination (LF) for the analyses in silicates (O). This study helps in understanding  the genesis of uranium mineralization.
