Carbon 14 not used for dating
A technical breakthrough was achieved in the source determination of very small carbon samples at the Accelerator Laboratory and the Laboratory of Chronology of the University of Helsinki. Scientists have created a new structure by encapsulating a single layer of fullerene molecules between two graphene sheets. A new material with micropores might be a way to fight climate change.
Buckyball sandwiches combine fullerenes and graphene. Scientists have created crystals that capture carbon dioxide much more efficiently than previously known materials, even in the ...
After all, this what the archeologist guessed in their published books.
The methodology is quite accurate, but dendrochronology supposedly shows that the C14 dates go off because of changes in the equilibrium over time, and that the older the dates the larger the error.
The chemical properties of atoms depend on the number of protons in their nuclei, placing them into the periodic table.
However, even chemically identical atoms can have different masses – these ...
Despite this she continually uses the c14 dates to create 'absolute' chronologies.
She says this is ok so long as you take into account the correction factors from dendrochronology.
(They conveniently forget to mention that the tree ring chronology was arranged by C14 dating.
