Week 15 is crystal! This week’s paper is from the Geological applications of laser ablation themed collection.
In this research pyrite crystals were examined, and the effect of laser type and their analytical paramenters on S isotope fractionation was investigated by a group from Australia and France.
This paper will be free to read until Sept 28th.
