Distributed Sample Analysis Facility (DSAF) combines the resources of four of the world's leading analytical laboratories to analyse meteoritic and sample returns with un-paralleled precision, offering possibility to apply a wide variety of stable and radiogenic isotopic systems. This theme includes the three laboratories that were highly in demand in Europlanet RI; CNRS-CRPG; VU Amsterdam and Open University. A major new addition is the Laboratory for Isotope Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry at the Institute for Planetology, Münster. This is the only German facility solely dedicated to the analysis to extra-terrestrial samples and represents a major expansion in the capabilities in Cosmochemistry to DSAF. The DSAF are:
Potential applicants are, however, strongly advised to make contact with staff of the proposed host facility to ensure that proposals are viable and/or choosing the optimal facility for the proposed research. Each TA has a contact person. Please see the links on the right. These people will be responsible for checking the technical feasibility of your proposal.
