In addition, anticoincidence detectors are utilized; these record events away from countertop, and any event recorded simultaneously both outside and inside the countertop is viewed as an extraneous occasion and ignored.

One other typical technology utilized for calculating 14 C task is fluid scintillation counting, that was devised in , but which needed to hold back until the first s, when efficient types of benzene synthesis had been developed, to be competitive with fuel counting; after fluid counters became the greater common technology option for newly built dating laboratories. The counters work by detecting flashes of light brought on by the beta particles emitted by 14 C while they connect to a fluorescing agent included with the benzene.

Like fuel counters, fluid scintillation counters require shielding and anticoincidence counters.Continue reading
