Laser ablation U-series analysis of fossil bones and teeth

Grun, Rainer; Eggins, Stephen; Kinsley, Leslie; Moseley, Hannah-Kate; Sambridge, Malcolm


Over the past decade, we have applied laser ablation ICP mass spectrometry U-series analysis to a large number of bones and teeth. The method is fast and provides high-resolution data of U-series isotopes, which give insights into the complexity of uranium migration into, within and out of bones. In this paper, we present our laser ablation approach in detail, from the experimental set up, to data reduction and uranium diffusion modelling. Laser ablation analysis can now be applied with minimum...[Show more]
