Radiocarbon dating of pollen by accelerator mass spectrometry
AMS is faster and needs a much smaller sample, but is more expensive.
If you typed the page address in the Address/Location bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.
Accelerator mass spectrometry is not dependent upon the radioactive decay.
What you’re doing is measuring all of the carbon isotopes in the sample – the 12, 13 and 14 – the accelerator operates like a giant mass spectrometer.
There are a number of ways to enter into a career in studying radiocarbon dating.
Typically, a Master's Degree in chemistry is required because of the extensive lab work.
