Data Analysis at the Jena 14C Laboratory

Axel Steinhof


The Jena Analysis Code (JAC) was developed at the Jena radiocarbon laboratory for the analysis of all 14C accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) data measured there. The fundamental principles and algorithms of JAC are presented here, along with the equally important checking procedures. JAC places emphasis on the uncertainty due to background subtraction and other contributions to the statistical uncertainty of 14C events.
