Cosmogenic 32 Si with a half-life of ca. 140 years is an excellent candidate to provide time information in the range 100–1000 years. Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) could greatly enhance its applicability as a natural clock due to the small sample size required for measurement. In this paper we describe the requirements for AMS measurement of natural samples, and we demonstrate the first...
