The radiocarbon dating method is based on certain assumptions on the global concentration of carbon 14 at any given time. One assumption is that the global levels of carbon 14 also called radiocarbon in the atmosphere has not changed over time. The other assumption is the corollary of the first; the biosphere has the same overall concentration of radiocarbon as the atmosphere due to equilibrium. The carbon 14 produced reacts with oxygen atoms in the atmosphere to form carbon dioxide.

C bomb peak dating of human DNA samples at the microgram level - CORE Reader

February 6, Italian nuclear physicists turned art detectives said Thursday they have discovered that a painting in the prestigious Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice is a fake. The art world's top experts and researchers have been trying to establish since the s whether a painting believed to be part of the "Contraste de Formes" series produced by French artist Fernand Leger between and was genuine. The Guggenheim Collection kept the painting in storage while Leger expert Douglas Cooper—who suspected it may be a fake—tried along with others to certify its origin, without success.

In the s, researchers made a monumental scientific breakthrough using carbon to date organic matter. We know the process as radiocarbon dating and chances are you learned about it in science class when talking about dinosaurs and the age of the earth. Now, though, researchers are applying the dating system in a new way to determine the authenticity of paintings. According to a new study released on June 3 rd in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences , researchers from Switzerland, Germany, and the US have found a new way to use radiocarbon dating on paintings in relation to the nuclear experiments of the 20 th century.
Without any consensus from experts, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the current steward of the painting, has never exhibited nor catalogued the artwork. To solve this art historical enigma, scientists from the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics INFN took a tiny piece of the canvas from an unpainted edge of the work. The team used a particle accelerator to measure the concentration of carbon 14 an isotope of carbon that has more neutrons than normal carbon 12 in the fabric, which would in turn allow them to determine when the canvas was produced, or more specifically, when the cotton was cut to make the canvas.
