EnvironMICADAS AMS and sample preparation laboratory for C-14 analyses


C-14 dating and Environmental Research Industrial Applications Gas Ion Source Interface
Background: 50.000 yrs BP
Quality Managemenet System ISO 9001: 2008

The EnvironMICADAS AMS was installed in Atomki during the summer of 2011. The system is also specialized for environmental studies besides C-14 dating. The detection limit is 50,000 yrs BP.

The specialized Gas Ion Source Interface was developed in collaboration with the Laboratory of Ion Physics at ETH (Zürich).  It is used for the routine C-14 analyses of very small samples (< 50 ug C) at high throughput and low measurement uncertainties in an automated system.
