NGMS laboratory

Noble Gas Mass spectrometer

PRL Thaltej campus

NGMS is a multi-collector mass spectrometer for isotope ratio measurement of noble gases and nitrogen.


It is a multi detector, magnetic sector mass spectrometer, tuned for isotopes of noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe) and nitrogen. The measurements is done in single aliquot of sample. The extraction is performed by techniques resistance furnace, laser microprobe, vacuum crusher and combustion system.
