Selected Publications for May 2012

We like to keep an eye open for journal publications where Isotopx instruments (Phoenix and Isoprobe as well as their direct predecessor the VG Sector 54) have been used so that we can provide an up to date bibliography to our users or to other interested parties. A list of selected papers, subdivided by application area and covering the last 2-3 years up to April 2012 is available as a pdf download here .

Of course a list of this type is out of date as soon as it’s published so we’ll provide 4-6 weekly updates via these news pages and the first installment is shown below. Hopefully this is a useful service, please feel free to contact if you would like to suggest any publications we’ve missed or if you think the bibliography can be improved in any way.
