Radiocarbon Accelerator Mass Spectrometry: Background, Precision and Accuracy
Since 1977, accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) has made important contributions to radiocarbon dating, and many new fields of research were opened up. The obvious advantages of AMS dating with respect to background, precision and accuracy are now well known. The actual limitations and consequences of AMS dating will be discussed here.
