The present equipment of the Department of Radioisotopes consists of:
- Two liquid scintillation alpha and beta spectrometers QUANTULUS™ 1220, manufactured by Wallac, used by the Radiocarbon Laboratory for precise measurements of natural radioactivities of 14C and many other isotopes (e.g., tritium 3H, radon 222Rn).
- Two liquid scintillation counters ICELS, for natural radiocarbon measurements.
- Three assemblies of gas proportional counters for measurements of radiocarbon concentrations in samples containing carbon of organic and inorganic origin.
- Vacuum line for preparation of graphite targets for 14C AMS dating.
- Vacuum lines for CO2 production and purification for GPC measurement.
- Line to conversion samples to the benzene
- Automatic reader of TL and OSL signals, manufactured by DAYBREAK, for measurements of the absorbed radiation dose
- Thermoluminescence reader of TL dosimeters
- Gamma spectrometer with the HPGe detector, manufactured by CANBERRA (with all the necessary software)
- Alpha spectrometer with the Si detector, manufactured by CANBERRA (with all the necessary software)
- Two gamma scintillation spectrometers of our own construction, used for measurements of radioactivity in liquid and bulk materials.
- Mass Spectrometer IsoPrime.
- Line for α-cellulose extraction from tree rings
- Device for precise measurements of annual tree ring width.
- Radiocarbon DataBase ROSE.
- Luminescence Database.
