The Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory in Lund performs dating on geological and archaeological samples.

Examples of material that we date are wood, charcoal, peat, macrofossils, bone and marine shells.

The LA-ICP-MS (“Laser Ablation – Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry”) is a sensitive analytical method for rapid multi-element analysis of solid materials and technical products at trace and ultra-trace level.

The investigated sample material is ablated by a focused laser beam and transported by a carrier gas (argon or helium) into the inductively coupled plasma ion source of an ICP-MS.

Using the U-Pb method, this laboratory also provides precise dates for rocks and minerals ranging in age from billions of years to about a million years.

Because of the extreme resistance of such minerals as zircon to age resetting, the U-Pb system has proven more reliable than other dating methods for rocks that have been strongly reheated, sheared, or exposed to hydrothermal fluids.

Results show that a remnant Last Interglacial barrier system is preserved in the mouth of a narrow incised valley.The resulting laser craters are only a few µm wide, therefore this minimal invasive method is suitable for valuable materials (e.g., archeological artifacts, gemstones).At the laboratory of the Institute for Geosciences (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz), the LA-ICP-MS method is applied since 2004 for the characterization of samples with respect to their trace element composition related to geology, mineralogy, climate research, materials sciences, gemstone research, and archaeology.During the early stage of Holocene sedimentary infill, a laterally extensive transgressive sand facies was deposited as rising post-glacial sea-level breached remnants of the Last Interglacial barrier ca. From 7500 to 4000 cal BP sediment continued to accumulate within the mouth of the incised valley, forming an extensive flood-tide delta within the drowned river estuary.Marine influences were restricted by further sediment accumulation at the mouth of the estuary, leading to the development of mid-Holocene barrier and back-barrier depositional environments.Reporting time for fast handling is maximum 6 weeks but normally 3-4 weeks.All samples submitted for dating must be accompanied by a sample description form.The analytical potential of such information is considerable yet studies are seldom undertaken owing to the difficulties associated with trace element analysis.This study is intended to explore the feasibility of using bulk element data instead of trace element data in such compositional analyses.Laboratory staff, from left: Mats Rundgren (lecturer), Raimund Muscheler (professor), Anne Birgitte Nielsen (lecturer), Ingemar Hansson (research engineer), Mattias Olsson (research engineer), Göran Skog (lecturer) and Git Klintvik Ahlberg (technician).Th/U method is sufficiently precise and reliable that it is used as the ultimate calibration of the radiocarbon dating method for samples older than about 10,000 years.
