The UAF Petrology Lab provides microspectroscopic analyses suitable for customers and researchers investigating a wide range of research topics. The research grade, Thermo Fisher Nicolet instrument is capable of qualitative (peak identification) and quantitative (concentrations of absorbing molecules) transmission, reflectance, and attenuated total reflectance analyses:
Training rate - $150 per day for instrument training or assistance requiring more than 60 minutes of PI Larsen's time.
Basic daily usage rate - $75 per day for self sufficient and independent use after completing training.
Expert data collection services - $120 per hour for PI Larsen to collect analyses for your project. This includes experimental design and novel research services.
Basic data collection services - $60 per hour for student collected analyses for non-critical or basic assessment analyses.
