14c12c ratio carbon dating
It follows the same technique by which a particle accelerator, usually a tandem, is configured as a mass spectrometer to separate the carbon isotopes in a sample, allowing milligram size samples to be dated CRA: Abbreviation of Conventional Radiocarbon Age Curie: Obsolete unit of radioactivity, equal to 3.7x1010 disintegrations per second.
Replaced by the Becquereltop D δ 13C: The carbon stable isotope ratio of a material relative to the PDB standard.
Part of the cosmic ray flux originates at the sun, and is generated by solar flare events. The mechanisms giving rise to the highest energy cosmic rays are not well understood.
AMS: Abbreviation of Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, the technique by which a particle accelerator, usually a tandem, is configured as a mass spectrometer to separate the carbon isotopes in a sample, allowing milligram size samples to be dated.
AMU: Abbreviation of Atomic Mass Unit, a convenient way for representing the masses of atoms.

Since the oxalic acid standard used in 14C measurements is itself decaying, in order to represent the absolute 14C activity in a material, as distinct from the ratio of the activity to the standard, the decay of the standard must be taken into account.
Various carbon structures, including carbon nanofilament (CNF), single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT), multi-wall carbon nanotube (MWCNT), and pyrolytic graphite sheet (PGS), were exposed in air to determine how they vary according to carbon structure and air temperature.
