Luminescence Dating

Maxxam provides analysis to support luminescence dating. We can provide precise measurements of the elements that produce ionizing radiation (Uranium, Thorium, and Potassium + Rubidium). This data can then be used in the age calculation along with the luminescence reading. Precision (uncertainty) is reported with results

Element Detection Limit (ppm)
Potassium (K) 50
Thorium (Th) 0.5
Uranium (U) 1
Rubidium (Rb) 10
