Neodymium isotope ratio
ALS Scandinavia offers neodymium isotope ratio analysis of 144Nd and 143Nd. Analysis of neodymium isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:
- Provenance studies
The analysis of neodynium (Nd) isotopes is typically carried out by MC-ICP-SFMS (multicollector ICP-SFMS). ALS Scandinavia has developed a matrix separation method that can be applied on prior to analysis for significantly improved measurement uncertainty.
Our isotope research is done in close co-operation with several external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology. The research has resulted in a number of publications in the scientific literature. For more information, please see isotope research.
