Graphitisation of samples for radiocarbon dating
A scientist working with samples of carboniferous material to establish their age by radiocarbon dating sits at an elemental analyzer coupled to a mass spectrometer, which incinerates the sample, producing carbon dioxide (CO2). This is then reduced to carbon in the form of graphite. Photographed at the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit, University of Oxford, UK.
