APPLICATIONS:
  • Complex crystal growth zonation: Subsampling provides high-resolution elemental isotopic chemistries, and intra-zonal variations of the crystal structure.
  • Accretionary growth structure examination: Subsampling within annual growth banding of molluscan shells allows reconstructing seasonal variations present during the life of an organism, such as a clam.
MATERIALS:
  • Organics
  • Bio Tissues
  • Metals
