...means inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. We use a ThermoFinnigan Element2 for quantitative analysis of trace and ultratrace elements in geological and non-geological samples.
...means laser ablation-inductive coupled plasma mass spectrometry. We use a New Wave UP193ss laser ablation system in Bremen for quantitative analysis of different types of solid sample materials.
...means electron probe micro analysis. We use a Cameca XS100 electron beam microprobe, for high spatial resolution and non-destructive analysis of element concentrations in (non-)geological samples.
...means X-ray microtomography. At the department of Geosciences at the University of Bremen we use a ProCon CT-ALPHA X-ray microtomograph to non-destructively determine the spatial distribution of matter inside a sample.
...stands for field emission scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Our laboratory is equipped with the field emission electron microscope SUPRA 40 from the company Zeiss and a Bruker XFlash 6|30 EDX detector.
...is a reactor designating an experimental arrangement originally described by Dickson et al. (1963), which can be used to simulate various processes occurring in hydrothermal systems under laboratory conditions.
