Abstract Optical dating was developed primarily for sediments (though application to pottery has also been made) and has the particular advantage over thermoluminescence (TL) that at deposition the latent signal is orders of magnitude smaller: this is particularly important for sediments deposited in water. For routine dating of quartz the signal is stimulated by green light, from an argon ion laser, from a filtered xenon lamp, from a filtered halogen lamp or from light-emitting diodes (though… CONTINUE READING
