Review of the Post-IR IRSL Dating Protocols of K-Feldspar
This study reviews the development of various pIRIR dating protocols, and compares their performance in estimating the equivalent dose (De), and standard growth curves (SGCs) of the pIR IR signals of K-feldspar are introduced.
Re-evaluating Pleistocene–Holocene occupation of cave sites in north-west Thailand: new radiocarbon and luminescence dating
Abstract Established chronologies indicate a long-term ‘Hoabinhian’ hunter-gatherer occupation of Mainland Southeast Asia during the Terminal Pleistocene to Mid-Holocene (45 000–3000 years ago).
Mainland Southeast Asia in the Longue Durée: A Zooarchaeological Test of the "Broad Spectrum Revolution" in Northern Thailand
In northern Thailand, previous zooarchaeological research suggests that hunter-gatherers consumed a broad diversity of animal resources during the Pleistocene-Holocene transition and afterwards


Optically stimulated luminescence dating of fluvial deposits: a review
Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating allows age determination of sediments deposited during the last glacial‐interglacial cycle. This relatively new technique therefore enables
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).
Radioluminescence Dating: A New Tool for Quaternary Geology and Archaeology
A new luminescence dating method based on radioluminescence measurements of potassium feldspar, able to investigate the light-emitting transition of electrons from the conduction band to an optically sensitive electron trap, which produces the age-dependent signal.
A detailed post‐IR IRSL dating study of the Niuyangzigou loess site in northeastern China
In this study, we report standard quartz SAR OSL and post‐IR infrared (IR) stimulated luminescence (post‐IR IRSL; pIRIR290) measurements made on sand‐sized quartz and K‐feldspar extracts from the
Advances in optically stimulated luminescence dating of individual grains of quartz from archeological deposits
Paleoanthropologists and archeologists interested in occupation histories, faunal remains, and objects of material culture have become increasingly reliant on optically stimulated luminescence (OSL)
