An optically stimulated luminescence reader (Riso TL/OSL DA-20) was installed in Toki Research Institute of Isotope Geology and Geochronology (Toki-shi, Gifu Prefecture), Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) for dating the geological sample. An accumulated dose of the sample is obtained using the reader. Sealed beta source of strontium-90 is required to be mounted on the reader because repeated artificial irradiation is necessary for the accumulated dose estimation. However, there are not many introduction examples for the reader domestically, and the information as to radiation control of the reader is limited. We therefore report here the process of source loading on the reader and radiation control associated with the use of the source.

Chronological and geochemical studies of fracture filling calcite in rocks provide the information for changes in geochemical condition, such as redox potential and pH in geological environments. Because the calcite can be found as common filling minerals in the natural samples, age zoning and spatial distribution of chemical composition in the calcite could be a wide-use indicator to reconstruct the past environmental changes. Radiometric (U-Pb) dating in a micro scale area (less than 10 micrometer) on the filling mineral surface by laser ablation-inductively coupled plasm mass spectrometry system (LA-ICPMS) has been applied to geological samples. Additionally, past redox potential has been estimated by Fe contents in the carbonates, which is based on the distribution coefficient of Fe between calcite deposit and groundwater. In this study, we evaluated the possibility of in-situ radiometric dating for the filling minerals by LA-ICPMS and redox potential reconstruction by the theoretical calculation using the distribution coefficient.
