Our research teams develop new technologies and adapt existing instrumentation to provide improved measurement capabilities and new methodologies. We develop new instrumentation and are an early-adopter of new commercially available technology and act as test-bed for in-development hardware and software. This underpins our research capability and, via NERC Facilities and collaborations with University and industry partners, we provide research communities with early access to world-leading analytical capability and training. Some of our areas of expertise are in:

  • High resolution isotope ratio mass spectrometry
  • New noble gas source design for high precision Ar/Ar
  • Ne isotope measurement
  • CO2 and CH4 clumped Isotopes
  • Small sample C, N, S isotopes
  • Portable OSL dating
  • 14C Positive Ion Mass Spectrometry
  • In situ 14C sampling
