Joint center: Accelerator mass spectrometer Tandetron 1.0 MV модель 4110BoAMS, produced by HVEE, NetherlandsAccelerator mass spectrometer Tandetron 1.0 MV Model 4110BoAMS is a facility of new generation that allows one to obtain precise information on isotope content of samples of milligramm amd submilligramm masses.
DescriptionMethods of accelerator massspectrometry (AMS) allow one to carry out quantitative determination of both radioactive and metastable isotopes (for example, 14С, 10Be, 129I ) with high absolute (1012 or ppt) and relative sensitivity (1014 – 1015). Extremely high resolution while counting isotopes with AMS is much greater than corresponding parameters of the massspectrometers with traditional ion separation. The main research directions for Tandetron 1.0 MV Model 4110BoAMS to be used are the following:
Technical parameters of the facility
The main advantagesTraditional methods allow one to measure radioisotope concentrations using their radioactive decay and to register βparticles emerging fom the sample. Accelerator massspectrometry permits direct counting of individual isotopes after their separation according to masstocharge ratio to be done. Sensitivity limits of isotope determination with Tandetron 1.0 MV Model 4110BoAMS are a few order of magnitude greater than while using secondary ion massspectrometry, neutron activation analysis and inductively coupled mass spectrometry.
Equipment of the joint center "Accelerator mass spectrometry",IAP NAS of Ukraine
According to the programme of a centralized buying of the foreign scientific instrumnets and equipment of NAS of Ukraine, the Institute of Applied Physics NAS of Ukraine carried out a preparation and put into operation the accelerator massspectrometer Tandetron 1.0 MV Model 4110BoAMS HVEE B.V. Startup and commissioning of the 4110 ВоAMS included the following: testing and verification of parameters of all AMS units, trial measurements of Carbon isotope ratios using standard samples, adjustment and optimization of the ionoptical system, which allow metrological characteristics to be obtained.

The facility can determine not only light isotopes such as 10Be, 14C and 26Al, but also heavy elements such as 129I. Measurements of isotope ratios 14C/12C, 10Be/9Be, 26Al/27Al, and 129I/127I obtained using accelerator massspectrometer 4110BoAMS are given in the Table : Carbon 14C/12C 13C/12C
