Future directions of luminescence dating of quartz
The analysis of the measured OSL and TT-OSL decay curves suggest that the two signals are derived from the same traps and are dominated by the fast OSL component.The experimental data presented support the hypothesis that the original source of the electrons that are thermally transferred is a trap that is less light sensitive than that giving rise to the fast OSL, but one that has similar thermal stability.Quaternary Geochronology 5(1): 65-75, DOI 10.1016/j.quageo.20.

Optically stimulated luminescence from quartz measured using the linear modulation technique.The ground moraine and low terminal moraine samples had residual doses as high as ~110 Gy, and ages were overestimated by ~15-17 ka.
