I am reading my new favorite book: “Geochronology and Thermochronology by the 40Ar/39Ar Method,” a book about how to use mass spectrometers to study argon isotopes in order to learn more about rocks. I am learning how argon isotopes can be used to infer the age and thermal history of rocks.
WHAT A COOL NAME FOR A MASS SPECTROMETER! Or for anything, really. I want an Omegatron. Just becuase it’s a cool word.
Apparently, the Omegatron mass spectrometer is having a comeback.
