Luminescence dating of quartz using an improved single aliquot regenerative-dose protocol
Single aliquot protocols are now widely used as a means of measuring the equivalent dose (De) in quartz and feldspar optical stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating of both heated and sedimentaryExpand

A review of quartz optically stimulated luminescence characteristics and their relevance in single-aliquot regeneration dating protocols
Different single-aliquot regenerative-dose (SAR) protocols have now been applied for some years to quartz grains for determining the equivalent dose, in both dating and retrospective dosimetryExpand

The single aliquot regenerative dose protocol: potential for improvements in reliability
Abstract This paper examines the effects of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) components, other than that usually termed the fast component, on dose determination by the single-aliquotExpand

A robust feldspar luminescence dating method for Middle and Late Pleistocene sediments
Luminescence dating is used extensively to provide absolute chronologies for Late Pleistocene sediments. Nowadays, most optical dates are based on quartz optically stimulated luminescence (OSL).Expand

Characterisation of blue-light stimulated luminescence components in different quartz samples: implications for dose measurement
Abstract Over the last few years, we have become increasingly confident that quartz is a reliable natural dosimeter for sediment dating. Nevertheless, there is only a limited understanding of theExpand

Luminescence dating of the Stratzing loess profile (Austria) – Testing the potential of an elevated temperature post-IR IRSL protocol
Abstract Feldspar infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL) signals saturate at ∼2000 Gy, i.e. ∼500–700 ka (assuming a dose rate of 3–4 Gy/ka, typical for loess) and it is therefore theoreticallyExpand
