Short-lived Radiochemistry Laboratory

Radiochemistry Laboratory - USF College of Marine Science

Principal Scientist: Patrick Schwing

The short-lived radioisotope laboratory is comprises of three high-resolution gamma spectrometer systems (2 well, 1 planar) used for broad applications in radiogeochemistry, water column radiochemistry, and analytical chemistry, but commonly used for oil spill research, paleoceanography, and characterization of recent sedimentation in coastal, estuarine, and marine settings.

Facility Instrumentation

  • Two Canberra high-purity germanium (HPGe) broad energy gamma detectors (Model # GCW3023) coupled to DCA1000 multi-channel analyzers.
  • Canberra high-purity germanium (HPGe) broad energy gamma detector (Model # GX1518) coupled to an analog multi-channel analyzer.
