Recent developments in luminescence dating of Quaternary sediments
Please note that Internet Explorer version 8. Please refer datiing this blog post for more information. VSL originates from a deeper dating quaternary sediments than OSL and has a thermal lifetime of 10 11 years. Quartz optically stimulated luminescence OSL dating is widely used to determine the time of deposition and burial of Late Quaternary sediments. Application of the method is usually limited to the pastyears due to early saturation of the OSL signal.
We develop and test a new post-blue VSL single aliquot regenerative dose ssediments protocol, and demonstrate that the VSL signal originates from a deep trap at about 1. Based on our investigations, we propose that the VSL protocol has the potential to extend the quartz dating range to cover the full Quaternary.
