Radiocarbon Applications

The CAIS specializes in the measurement of radiocarbon (C-14) for three primary purposes:

Biobased Products Initiative: Developing a certification program for products that incorporate biological materials ("biobased products").

Measurement Methods: Two methods for radiocarbon measurement are available at the CAIS: Low-Level Liquid Scintillation Counting (LSC) and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS). Using LSC the age of a sample is determined by measuring the amount of radioactive decay in the sample. Using AMS, the age is determined by directly counting the carbon atoms in the sample. More »
