Measurement of radiation damage in ceramics and its application to age determination

Abstract:

The effects of high energy radiation on ancient ceramics, as observed through the measurement of the resulting thermoluminescence, is reported and the possibility of using thermoluminescence measurements to determine the age of the ceramics is investigated.

The radiation effects considered are the filling of excising electron and hole traps and the creation of new traps since a knowledge of the relative importance of these two effects is essential for age determination. Trap filling...
