Boreas 31, In contrast, the radial plots for quartz from both samples show the presence of high palaeodoses corresponding with incompletely bleached grains. A similar test is not necessary when the analyses focus on feldspar grains, because the quartz grains which may be present in the aliquots are insensitive to infrared stimulation; iv a measurement of anomalous fading for feldspar. Suitable for samples up to about Ka containing quartz. Events that can be dated using OSL are, for example, the mineral's last exposure to sunlight; Mungo Man, Australia's oldest human find, was dated in this manner. This reflects the percent decrease of intensity per decade, with a decade being a factor of 10 in time since irradiation. The SAR protocol applied to coarse-grain quartz 1.
As soon as the mineral is exposed to sunlight, for example during its transport, trapped electrons absorb the photon energy from the Sun , and are released from the traps. Folz E. The corresponding Equivalent dose is calculated by reading it down to the x-axis.

The typical range for burnt stone or sediment is from about to , years for luminescence dating methods and 1ka to ka for ESR dating. Lamothe to take into consideration the anomalous fading tab. From a geomorphological point of view optical luminescence also presents the advantage that it dates directly the deposited material; iii cosmogenic dating methods are used principally for age estimates of surfaces e. A distribution of individual readings provides insight into the nature of the sample itself - both admixture and differential degree of bleaching - and therefore the multiple determinations allow accuracy to be better determined.
