Radioactive elements in dating events and artifacts

Based on a discipline of geology called stratigraphy, rock layers are used to decipher the sequence of historical geological events.Relative techniques can determine the sequence of events but not the precise date of an event, making these methods unreliable.

The isotope of Potassium-40, which has a half-life of 1.25 Billion years, can be used for such long measurements.Another absolute dating method is thermoluminescence, which dates the last time an item was heated.It is the only method that can be used to date rocks, pottery and minerals for dates that are approximately between 300 to 10,000 years old.This method is based on the fact that when a material is heated or exposed to sunlight, electrons are released and some of them are trapped inside the item.Once you heat this item again using high temperatures, the trapped electrons become excited and recombine with the item’s material.

This process frees energy in the form of light, which can be measured.
