Student internship program on “Stable isotope micro-analytical techniques”

We are glad to announce an internship program for postgraduate students to learn the practical aspects of analytical techniques used for stable isotopes by conventional isotope ratio mass spectrometry. The internship will start with an introductory one day lecture on the basics of stable isotope geochemistry. This will be followed by rigorous hands on experience on experimental techniques as given below
(i) Micro volume sampling techniques for different minerals,
(ii) Handling of ultra-high vacuum metal and glass lines,
(iii) Methods for preparation, separation and purification of various gas species for stable isotope measurements (CO2, H2O, N2, O2, SF6),
(iv) Dual inlet gas source mass spectrometry,
(v) Data reduction and practical applications

Date June 19-24, 2017 (five nights and six days)
Venue Faculty of Science, Niigata University
Language Japanese and/or English
Participants Post graduate students (Max. 6 students)
