Towards more precise 10Be and 36Cl data from measurements at the 10-14 level: Influence of sample preparation

Merchel, S.; Arnold, M.; Aumaitre, G.; Benedetti, L.; Bourles, D.L.; Braucher, R; Alfimov, V.; Freeman, S; Steier, Peter; Wallner, Anton


The spreading application of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) to the geosciences will require measurement of increasing numbers of samples with low 10Be/9Be and 36Cl/Cl isotopic ratios. To distinguish radionuclide concentrations in samples from corresponding processing blanks, samples must be prepared using stable isotope carriers with low intrinsic radionuclide concentrations. Measurements at different AMS facilities have shown that commercially available 9Be carriers rarely meet these...[Show more]
