Dating by thermoluminescence

Rated 4.69/5 based on 896 customer reviews

Some clays are hardly thermoluminescent at all; some may not have a straight-line relationship between dose and TL; spurious luminescence due to chemical or pressure effects may mask the radiation-induced TL; occasionally, a condition called "anomalous fading", where part of the TL is unstable, may lessen the accuracy of the dose measurement.

Generally speaking, when a sample is drilled and there is no information available about the burial environment, one may expect up to 40 per cent uncertainty.

This radiation may in some cases contribute over half the total dose.

Finally, one has to make the measurements regardless of whether the TL of the clay is well-behaved or not.

Should I be concerned about artificial irradiation? If the radioactivity of the pottery itself, and its surroundings, is measured, the dose rate, or annual increment of dose, may be computed.Much stoneware is not so hard as porcelain and may be sampled by drilling.The clay cores from lost wax metal castings may readily be tested. Warning about fakes using ancient materials What about airport x-rays and radiography? Thus, when one measures dose in pottery, it is the dose accumulated since it was fired, unless there was a subsequent reheating. When pottery is fired, it loses all its previously acquired TL, and on cooling the TL begins again to build up.
