Non-Destructive Carbon-14 Dating of Art

Non-destructive Carbon 14 dating of art

Traditional carbon-14 dating methods require a physical sample from your artwork to process and obtain results. A new process, called non-destructive carbon-14 dating, does not require any sample removal. Instead, the entire object is placed in a chamber with plasma, which slowly oxidizes the surface of the object. This produces carbon dioxide, which can then be analyzed to determine the date of the object.
