Forstner, O; Andersson, P.; Diehl, C.; Golser, Robin; Hanstorp, Dag; Kutschera, Walter; Lindahl, Anton O; Priller, Alfred; Steier, Peter; Wallner, Anton


We are investigating the possibility of using laser photodetachment of negative atomic and molecular ions as an additional isobaric selection filter in accelerator mass spectrometry. The aim of this study is to find a possibility to further improve the detection limit for long-lived heavy radionuclides at AMS facilities. We will focus on the astrophysical relevant radionuclide182Hf, which is one of the isotopes measured with the 3 MV tandem AMS facility VERA (Vienna Environmental Research...[Show more]
