The Accelerator Mass Spectrometer (AMS) facility makes use of the upgraded Tandem Accelerator Laboratory at iThemba LABS (Gauteng). The beam optics and computer-control system allows for measurements with high precision that will contribute to the solution of a wide range of problems. Due to its extremely versatile application in almost the entire scientific arena, the realization of the AMS facility constitutes the major strategic objective of iThemba LABS. The research applications will benefit fields such as Environmental Sciences, Geosciences, Biomedicine, Toxicology, Oceanic Studies, Climatology and Paleo-climatology, Nuclear Waste research and material sciences.
