The AMS 14C Dating Laboratory performs 14C datings on geological, archaeological, water and atmospheric samples. The normal sample size is 1 mg carbon, but ranges down to 0.1 mg C in special cases.
The Thin Film Laboratory produces thin single crystals of different materials with thickness up to 2000 nm. The standard orientations available are (100), (110) and (111). Any other orientation can be grown upon request. The films are delivered on substrates or selfsupporting on rings.
These facilities are accessible to the scientific community for collaborative research and also to Industry, including space agencies (e.g. ESA, NASA). A broad range of research topics are supported including Planetology, Volcanology, Meteorology and the study of Aerosols. These activities are financially supported by several European networks (EU).
