Accelerator mass spectrometry and its applications

  title={Accelerator mass spectrometry and its applications},
  author={L. Keith Fifield},
The state of the art in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is reviewed. The review is divided in two parts. The first covers the general methodology, followed by its specific elaborations for the commonly measured long-lived isotopes such as 10Be, 14C, 26Al, 36Cl and129I, as well as other isotopes with emerging applications. The second part considers the very wide spectrum of applications that now employ AMS, and groups these according to research area rather than isotope. The period up until… CONTINUE READING
