Episode 5: Applications of Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) for Environmental Problems

Experts: John Olesik & Paolo Gabrielli

Ohio State boasts state-of-the art facilities and world-leading expertise in Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), one of the most versatile tools for elemental quantification, and with possible applications over a broad range of Earth, environmental and health sciences. John Olesik, leader of OSU's Trace Element Research Laboratory in the School of Earth Sciences, will present the capabilities of single particle ICP-MS, which allows measurement of individual nanoparticles and microparticles, ICP-collision/reaction cell MS, which improves measurement of ultra-trace elements, and laser ablation ICP-MS, which allows spot analysis or elemental mapping of solid samples including thin sections. Paolo Gabrielli, a researcher in the Byrd Center's Ice Core Paleoclimatology Group, will present techniques for conducting ultra-trace element analysis in aqueous samples down to the sub-femtogram per gram level, and direct determination of ultra-low Rare Earth Elements concentrations in water matrices.

New Tools for Old Problems (NT4OP)

The New Tools for Old Problems (NT4OP) series is designed to bring together developers of cutting-edge observational and analytical capabilities and Earth and climate researchers to identify new applications. Each episode consists of a brief (~20 minute) overview presentation by the expert or team of experts, followed by an open discussion and Q&A session to explore potential new applications of their “tools” to Earth and climate research. Registration is required to attend the live events, which are recorded and open to all.
