Centre for Isotope Research - CIO
CIO is specialised in high-accuracy measurements of (variations in) the occurrence of natural, rare isotopes. For this purpose it has a wide range of modern instruments at its disposal (mass-spectrometers, amongst others a 2.5 MV accellerator-mass-spectrometer for carbon-14 and laser equipment). CIO carries out own research into improving of existing measuring instruments and methods, whilst also developing new technology in this field.
Applications of this type of analysis is mainly focused on two main research lines...read more.
