Hooray, a microscope!

Pers / media: OnderzoekAcademic

Description

Radiocarbon analysis of single tree-rings is booming. Occasionally, such analysis allows objects to be dated as precise as at the exact calendar year! But sampling single tree-rings is not easy. One needs knowledge of the growth of the wood species and to have the right sampling tools. And patience. But a first requirement is having suitable equipment. In this blog I briefly explain my quest for a good microscope.
