Atomic accelerator carbon dating
---------------------------- Read the Danish version of this article at COMMENT: Private companies and public sectors collect our data every day and minute.In a democratic society, we need to teach children to become critically aware and understand how data processing and digital technologies really work.It is these radiocarbons that enable scientists to determine the age of an object.The new atom accelerator has an electric potential of one million volts.The primary task of the new atom accelerator which, according to Heinemeier, is the most sophisticated accelerator of its kind, will be to carry out accurate carbon-14 datings.

The Centre for Accelerator Science is a world-leading centre for ion beam analysis and accelerator mass spectrometry.Researchers at Aarhus University are filled with excitement as a new atom accelerator is currently being set up at the Department of Physics and Astronomy.”We are like little kids on Christmas Day because we have some of the tastiest new technology in front of us,” says Associate Professor Jan Heinemeier, who together with colleagues has spent the past three years trying to get the new accelerator to Aarhus University.
