New IR laser technique to detect traces of radiocarbon

It will be useful to determine the age of archaeological with a higher precision than before.

Paolo De Natale and his team within CNR-INO research activity has developed a new high-sensibility infrared laser technique to detect radiocarbon traces in archaeological. It will be useful to determine their age with a higher precision than before and in extreme conditions of very low concentrations.

Some newspaper and magazine shoot the news as evidenced by CNR-INO press review (here and here). Below is the regional television news about the finding (only in Italian), with scenes shooting in LENS labs.
