“We can use the facility to check when sediments of lakes were created and subsequently gauge the past geological events on the earth,” said Kothari.

Beta Analytic uses Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) technology, which gives the most advanced precision and accuracy for carbon-14 measurements.

Hence, this facility is crucial and will enable us to accurately determine the date of various organic materials like skull and bones,” said co-investigator in the project Mayank Vahia, from the department of astronomy and astrophysics, TIFR.

Besides its importance from the archaeological and astronomy-archaeological points of view, the facility is critical for geologists and can also be used for pharmaceutical applications in drug development.

The facility, known as Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, will be useful in dating miniscule samples from objects of archaeological significance.
