Facility Overview (from CU Shared Instrumentation Network 2016)

Both mass spectrometers in the CUBES-SIL lab are magnetic sector, gas-source, isotope ratio mass spectrometers designed to measure the relative abundance of stable isotopes of light elements and molecules. These measurements have many applications in numerous scientific disciplines, including earth sciences (paleoclimate, paleoecology, geobiology, hydrology, diagenesis and metamor- phism), ecology, forensics, planetary sciences, microbiology, food science and agriculture, and many more.
