Purdue Rare Isotope Measurement Laboratory (PRIME)

The Purdue Rare Isotope Measurement Laboratory (PRIME Lab) is a dedicated research and service facility for accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). AMS is an ultra-sensitive analytical technique for measuring low levels of long-lived radionuclides . The accelerator is used to measure cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides, environmental radionuclides, and biomedical radionuclides. The commonly measured radionuclides are ?10Be (half-life 1,360,000 years), 14C (5730 years), 26Al (705,000 years), 36Cl (300,000 years), 41Ca (100,000 years), and 129I (16.7 million years). ?The isotopic abundances measured range from one part in 1x10^15 (a thousand million million) to 1x10^11.

X-ray Crystallography

The X-ray Crystallography Facility provides both single crystal and powder/multicrystalline X-ray diffraction services for researchers at Purdue as well as off-site users and commercial customers. The facility offers full data collection and structure analysis services, and trains users to independently determine structures. The recently renovated lab features three instruments: - Panalytical Empyrean Powder X-ray Diffractometer. Equipped with both parallel beam and focusing optics, high speed PIXcel 3D Medipix detector and high temperature stage for analysis of powders, multicrystalline materials and thin films. - Two Bruker D8 Quest Single Crystal Diffractometers equipped with large Photon detectors and variable temperature devices. The Mo-wavelength instrument is ideal for fast, high throughput data collection of well to weakly diffracting samples, and for heavily absorbing samples. The Cu-wavelength microsource instrument is ideal for very weakly diffracting and small crystals and absolute structure determination.
