Abstract

The SUERC single-stage accelerator mass spectrometer is capable of generating and accelerating-fromground positive ions. Having previously shown suppression of molecular interferences we have proceeded to study positive ion radiocarbon AMS. Potential benefits are convenient and efficient ion production. This depends on overcoming the large 14N atomic isobar which we have suppressed by seven orders of magnitude in the accelerator terminal. A remaining interference is more problematic, however.
