RSR in the UK with University of Liverpool's Steve Taylor

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart reporting on location from England talks with Prof. Steve Taylor who lectures in electrical engineering at the University of Liverpool. Dr. Taylor earned his engineering degrees, a bachelors, masters, and Ph.D., from the the Universities of London and Liverpool and has written over 80 scientific articles, and is a reviewer for the journals IEE Electronic Letters, Solid State Electronics, Journal of Applied Physics, and Applied Physics Letters. His government has come to him and his team for help in detecting potential chemical weapons being brought through ports of entry, and they have also been developing a portable Carbon-14 dating device that can be used in the field, giving archaeologists and other scientists the ability to get results weeks sooner than when they have to send their specimens to a laboratory. This technology could be used also to study from bones from around the world that are yielding dinosaur soft tissue including those in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, USA.
