Radiocarbon Dating

14.11.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

Radio carbon dating is a method for determining the age of organic material by measuring the ratio of the naturally occurring radioisotope carbon-14 and the isotope carbon-12 and/ or carbon-13. Carbon-14 is present in carbon dioxides (CO2).<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> An improved method for radiocarbon dating of organic substances by the precise determination of the ratio 14C/13C and/or the ratio 14C/12C or even the absolute quantity of the 14C isotope. The carbon isotope ratio is measured in a cavity after burning the sample. By means of infrared laser spectroscopy one can measure the intensity of the asymmetric stretching vibrations of the CO2 isotopes. <br><br>

<strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>Very accurate method </li> <li>Significantly more accurate results than previous method</li> <li>Suitable for forensic cases </li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German Patent DE102009045458<br> EP, US, AU Application <br> <br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Technische Universität Berlin</p>
