Trace element analysis in fluid inclusions using LA-ICP-MS

Dr. Zhihui Dai
State Key Laboratory of Ore Deposits Geochemistry (SKLODG), China

Visiting Scholar

12 noon

034-127

Dr. Zhihui Dai was awarded a doctoral degree in Geochemistry from Guiyang Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in mid-2012. Since then, she has been at the institute at State Key Laboratory of Ore Deposit Geochemistry (SKLODG). Her work focuses on the development of micro-analytical techniques for trace element analyses on minerals and rocks using LA-ICP-MS. The laboratory she manages currently houses two LA-ICP-MS for trace-element analysis on silicates, carbonates, oxides, phosphate minerals and fluid inclusions. The laboratory is expanding to include a brand new LA-ICP-MS and LA-MC-ICP-MS later this year. She is visiting James Cook University to collaborate with Dr. Huiqing Huang and to explore new approaches for data reduction and interpretation of U-Pb and trace element analyses, some of which we have set up in our LA-ICP-MS laboratory at JCU.
