Simple transformation for converting CW-OSL curves to LM-OSL curves

2000-01-01
A simple mathematical transformation is introduced to convert from OSL decay curves obtained in the conventional way to those obtained using a linear modulation technique based on a linear increase of the stimulation light intensity during OSL measurement. The validity of the transformation was tested by the IR-stimulated luminescence curves from feldspars, recorded using both the conventional and the linear modulation techniques. The transformation was further applied to green-light-stimulated OSL from K and Na feldspars.

Optically stimulated luminescence from quartz measured using the linear modulation technique
Bulur, Enver; Murray, A.S. (2000-12-15)
The optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) from heated natural quartz has been investigated using the linear modulation technique (LMT), in which the excitation light intensity is increased linearly during stimulation. In contrast to conventional stimulation, which usually produces a monotonically decreasing signal, linearly increasing the stimulation power gives peaks in the signal as a function of time. In cases where the OSL signal contains more than one component, the linear increase in power of the st...
Use of the LM-OSL technique for the detection of partial bleaching in quartz
Agersnap Larsen, N.; Bulur, Enver; Bøtter-Jensen, L.; McKeever, S.W.S. (2000-12-15)
We present a study of the sensitivity to light (ease-of-bleaching) of the trapped charge in sedimentary quartz grains using an optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technique in which the intensity of the stimulation light is linearly increased during the measurement period. The technique is known as linear modulation OSL (LM-OSL). In controlled laboratory conditions, this technique has been employed to study the ease-of-bleaching of the trapped charge in quartz by comparing the OSL curves of quartz aliqu...
An alternative technique for optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) experiment
Bulur, Enver (1996-01-01)
An alternative technique is developed for observation of OSL by linearly increasing the intensity of the excitation source during readout. The technique allows the observation of OSL signals in the form of peaks unlike the decaying curves. The parameters of the new OSL peak can be used to obtain the intensity and the lifetime of the decay. With the technique it is also possible to discriminate overlapping OSL signals by using the peak positions.

The inverse scattering transform technique of Belinskii-Zakharov for the integration of nonlinear sigma model equations is reviewed. N-soliton solutions of the principal chiral field equations axe given. The explicit two-complex pole soliton solutions of vacuum and electro-vacuum Ernst equations are constructed.
LM-OSL signals from some insulators: An analysis of the dependency of the detrapping probability on stimulation light intensity
Bulur, Enver; Murray, A.S. (2001-01-01)
Optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) signals from various insulators including quartz, Al2O3 : C, BeO and NaCl have been studied using the linear modulation OSL (LM-OSL) technique. LM-OSL is based on the linear increase of the stimulation light power from zero to a maximum during the measurement. The resultant OSL curve initially increases and then decays after reaching a maximum, The analysis of LM-OSL data usually assumes a linear relationship between the detrapping rate and the stimulation light inten...
