A New Accelerator-Based Mass Spectrometry.
Gove, H. E.
Physics Teacher, v21 n4 p237-45 Apr 1983
Tandem electrostatic accelerators produce beams of positive ions which are used to penetrate atomic nuclei in a target, inducing nuclear reactions whose study elucidates varied properties of the nucleus. Uses of the system, which acts like a mass spectrometer, are discussed. These include radiocarbon dating measurements. (JN)
