This week saw the installation and testing of PCIGR’s newest instrument, a Nu TIMS, that has replaced our beloved Triton (see story from February 18, 2022).
PCIGR Facility Manager Dr. Corey Wall is already analyzing samples on the new Nu TIMS, which will see much analytical action in the years ahead.
The new Nu TIMS will allow Dr. Wall, a U-Pb geochronology specialist, to carry out high-precision chemical abrasion TIMS analyses with a double spike. Very few facilities in the world are equipped to perform these types of analyses at such precise levels.
