Some novel features of post-500°C heating blue stimulated OSL emission of fired natural quartz

-OSL simply implies that the charge responsible for emission originates from the deep trap and not the mechanism involved in OSL process. This is necessary to differentiate from the conventional OSL (325°C TL Peak). The dosimetric properties of DT-OSL were found to be good in terms of linearity and upper limit of dose estimation. The signal also satisfied various tests needed for reliable use dose estimation. 2 Experimental details The luminescence measurements were carried out on automatic Risø TL/OSL, TL-DA-15 system having a blue light-emitting diodes (λ=470 ± 30nm

Infrared stimulated luminescence dating of 19th century fluvial deposits from the upper Rhine River

( Visocekas and Guerin, 2006 ). It has been presumed that anomalous fading results from tunnelling of charge that follows strict physical laws, i.e. the signal decays logarithmically ( Visocekas, 1985 ). Following these assumptions, Huntely and Lamothe (2001) developed a procedure to correct for fading. First, storage experiments are carried out to monitor the loss of signal with time. The results of such experiments are expressed by g -values, where g is the signal loss in percent per decade, a decade being a factor of 10 in time since irradiation (Huntely and Lamothe

Investigation of the role of the production process on the luminescence of sea salt products

salt samples are manufactured on the same production line they have similar luminescence characteristics, although some slight sensitivity changes may occur, and so are amenable to evaluation using a standardized testing protocol.

New luminescence-based geochronology framing the last two glacial cycles at the southern limit of European Pleistocene loess in Stalać (Serbia)

.3–2.1 m, L1SS1SSS1). Physical and chemical proxy data ( Obreht et al ., 2016 ) revealed the existence of a crypto tephra mixed within the L1SS1LLL1 loess layer at ca . 2.4–2.8 m. Above, a brown loess layer (0.3–1.3 m, L1LL1) is located. On top, the recent soil (S0) is exposed. A more detailed stratigraphy is presented in Obreht et al . (2016) . 4 Methodology D e Equivalent Dose Measurements Samples for equivalent dose (D e ) determination were extracted from the metal tubes under subdued red light conditions; the outer 2 cm of sediment were removed
