173. AGE DETERMINATION OF A SEDIMENT SAMPLE BY OPTICALLY STIMULATED LUMINESCENCE
Luminescence dating is an important method for age determination that is based on studying the luminescence characteristics of quartz and feldspar as the most common minerals in sediments and artifacts. The greatest advantage of this dating method is its wide dynamic range, starting from 10 years to 500000 years and its ability to be applied on many different materials and to a range of grain sizes, from fine slit to medium sand. Measurements in this paper are done on sediment samples by optically stimulated luminescence technique, including sample preparation and analysis of results.
