description

  • We are investigating the feasibility of measuring the oxygen isotopic composition and contents of diamonds. If oxygen levels are sufficiently high, we would provide a new stable isotope system to discuss the source of diamond-forming melts/fluids. These measurements have never been made with enough accuracies and we presently finalize the building of a vacuum line to obtain the first values, end of 2014.
