The Helsinki Accelerator Mass Spectrometry facility (HAMS) is the only AMS system in Finland. Most radiocarbon determinations (research and industry) in Finland are done by us. High quality of the results is due to continued process optimization and advanced data-analysis. The sensitivity of the method is currently <10-17 and precision <0.2% for high-precision samples.

Current research topics include:

  • Environmental 14CO2 and 14CH4 measurements
  • Fuel bioportion measurements
  • Climate anomaly (AD 775) research with 14C
  • Soil CO2 emission

For potential research ideas or joint projects, don't hesitate to contact us.

For students, we usually have several interesting topics available for a Master's thesis. Be sure to contact us if you want to complete your degree in an interdiciplinary field which also has several connections to the private sector.
