Ge 145 - Anatomy of an IRMS

Al Nier

(Fall, 2017). Graduate level class designed to give students a more fundamental understanding of the operation of isotope-ratio mass spectrometers. Class consists of one lecture and one 3-hour lab per week, during which we deconstruct an old Finnigan Delta-S IRMS to understand how it works. Grading is based entirely on a final, written project that describes the operation of the IRMS. Class is taught every other year, and enrollment limited to 6 people. Preference is given to graduate students using IRMS techniques in their thesis research. Offered in 2017. Course website.
