Abstract

Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is a method of analysis incorporating particle accelerator technology into a mass spectrometer. The field was developed in 1977 as an analytical tool first for the measurement of radiocarbon and it was quickly extended to other radionuclides. It is now the most widely used technique for measurement of the low levels of trace radionuclides, with more than 80 active AMS laboratories worldwide. These measurements of radionuclides are widely applied to geology, archeology, hydrology, oceanography, and planetary sciences.
