Improving the detection limit for 182 Hf

Winkler, Stephan; Fifield, L Keith; Tims, Stephen; Morton, Clyde


A nearby supernova would deposit radionuclides on earth. The long-lived radionuclide 182Hf (t1/2 = 8.9 Ma) is one of a number of candidates for an isotopic signature of such an event. Together with 60Fe, observation of 182Hf would be direct evidence for a supernova site of the r-process. The most suitable site for searching for such a signature would be a deep-sea sediment of slow deposition rate. Measurement of 182Hf at the anticipated level requires very effective suppression of the...[Show more]
