What change does this have on uncalibrated carbon-14 ages.
Radiometric dating techniques indicate that the Earth is thousands of times older than that--approximately four and a half billion years old.
fullerene Two fullerene structures: an elongated carbon nanotube and a spherical buckminsterfullerene, or “buckyball.
Unlike long-term radiometric dating methods, radiocarbon relies on knowing the fraction of radioactive carbon-14 in the atmosphere at the time the object being dated was alive.
Much of the light following a supernova blast is powered by newly created radioactive parents.
Related techniques include optically stimulated luminescence (OSL), and infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL).
There are occasions when the argon-argon dating method does not give an age even if there is sufficient potassium in the sample and the rock was old enough to date.
