New Lab Website

Unloading ARGUS VI from Wooden Crate

Welcome to the new website for the OSU Argon Geochronology Laboratory. Here we explain how we employ the 40Ar/39Ar dating method using two rare gas mass spectrometers, one 20-year-old MAP 215-50 single collector and one brand-new ARGUS VI multi-collector that is currently being readied for analyses.

We also have added a section on our ongoing Projects, which the PI’s and students keep updated regularly, and we have listed all Publications and Theses resulting from our work. Finally, you can read everything About Us, our Lab History, and the Staff and Students involved.

If you are interested in getting your samples age dated using the incremental heating or single crystal 40Ar/39Ar age dating method, then please follow the instructions on the Services page.
