The Langmuir group occupies 3,000 square feet of refurbished lab space in Hoffman Labs where sample preparation, digestion and analyses are performed for trace element and isotope analyses. The space also houses a two Thermo inductively coupled mass spectrometers, one of which is connected to a Resolution Excimer laser. Using a strip furnace and the new laser we can now determine efficiently the entire suite of major and trace elements on igneous samples.
The clean labs are metal-free labs with better than class 10 laminar-flow work spaces for chemical separations and low blank trace element and isotope analysis.
