Abstract
The luminescence emission of quartz is used in optically stimulated
luminescence dating (OSL), however the precise origins of the emission
are unclear. A suite of quartz samples were analysed using X-ray excited
optical luminescence (XEOL). Radiation dose effects were observed
whereby the UV emissions (3.8 and 3.4 eV) were depleted to the benefit
of the red emission (1.9-2.0 eV). Samples were excited at similar to 7
keV. Understanding why some quartz emit light more brightly than others
will increase the efficiency and precision of OSL analyses. (C) 2011
