Towards High-precision Ams : Progress and Limitations

  title={Towards High-precision Ams : Progress and Limitations},
  author={Christopher Bronk Ramsey and Thomas Higham and P. Leach},
Precision and accuracy in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) dating relies on the systematic reduction of errors at all stages of the dating process, from sampling to AMS measurement. With new AMS systems providing much better precision and accuracy for the final stage of the process, we need to review the process as a whole to test the accuracy of reported results. A new High Voltage Engineering Europa (HVEE) AMS system was accepted at Oxford in September 2002. Since then, the system has been… CONTINUE READING
