Print Icon Geochronology

The Geochronology Laboratory at AMD, HQ, Hyderabad is engaged in carrying out isotopic dating of whole rock and minerals by Rb-Sr, Sm-Nd, U-Pb and Pb-Pb methods.Besides different uranium minerals are also studied by U-Pb method to understand the multi-geological events. The laboratory is equipped with Thermal Ionisation Mass pectrometer (TIMS) model Phoenix from Isotopx for isotopic studies.


A Class 100 clean room facility exists for the chemical processing of geological samples and their elemental separation. The data generated from the laboratory have found place in different publications.
