A new facility for 14C-AMS dating and for studies on cultural heritage by ion beam analysis has been put in operation at the University of Lecce, Lecce, Italy. The system is based on a 3 MV TandetronTM accelerator, manufactured by High Voltage Engineering Europa (HVEE). In the 14C-AMS system the three carbon isotopes are injected sequentially in the accelerator with cycle frequencies of up to 1 kHz. Performance tests have shown that the beams can be transported without any loss through the system. The 13C/12C precision of the system is 0.04% and no significant drift in the measured ratios is present.

Abstract

A new facility for 14C-AMS dating and for studies on cultural heritage by ion beam analysis has been put in operation at the University of Lecce, Lecce, Italy. The system is based on a 3 MV TandetronTM accelerator, manufactured by High Voltage Engineering Europa (HVEE). In the 14C-AMS system the three carbon isotopes are injected sequentially in the accelerator with cycle frequencies of up to 1 kHz. Performance tests have shown that the beams can be transported without any loss through the system. The 13C/12C precision of the system is 0.04% and no significant drift in the measured ratios is present.
