Ricerca scientifica: Laboratori: Radiocarbonio
The NSF – Arizona Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) Laboratory is used primarily to provide radiocarbon measurements. Radiocarbon is well known for its use in age dating of many kinds of materials. The method is applicable to almost any carbonaceous material which formed in the last 50,000 years
The Center for Applied Isotope Studies is a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to research in nuclear analytical methods and systems technology. In operation for 20 years on the University of Georgia campus in Athens, the CAIS has established a national and international reputation as a premier analytical laboratory, known for pioneering efforts in radiometric and stable isotope analysis techniques

We have processed approximately 2300 samples for ~ 80 ESH and 30 Latin American investigators since our program began in September 1998 (vs. 1200 originally proposed). To those of you who have made use of the lab, it has been a pleasure to work with you. We also wish to thank the staff of the National Ocean Sciences AMS Facility at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for provision of high quality 14C measurements on our targets.
14C analyses are performed in our laboratory by high-pressure CO2 gas-counting. We contributed to develop this technique towards high precision and sufficient long-term stability. Presently we can analyse ca. 850 samples per year, at a precision of 2…3 permille.
The AMS-facility in Erlangen is used for age-determination of carbon containing samples by the radiocarbon method
Faculty, staff and students in the Laboratory of Isotope Geochemistry employ naturally occurring stable and radioactive isotopes as well as major element compositions to hydrological and geological questions. Study areas are generally local or in nearby hydrologic basins, and problems range from locations and extent of groundwater recharge to sources of chloride in brines. Students learn techniques of sampling and analysis of waters for tritium, radiocarbon and stable isotopes, and their interpretation.
The Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (CAMS) at LLNL has developed a wide range of isotopic and ion-beam analytical tools for use in basic research and technology development. Research programs at the Center are both multi-disciplinary and multi-organizational.
Since 1970 the NERC Radiocarbon Laboratory located in East Kilbride, Scotland, has provided UK scientists and international collaborators with radiocarbon measurements, mainly for environmental science projects.
The Centre, including its radiocarbon dating unit, is primarily involved in environmental research, using both stable and radioactive isotopes.
