Abstract

The electron-trapping probability in OSL traps as a function of irradiation temperature is investigated for sedimentary quartz and feldspar. A dependency was found for both minerals; this phenomenon could give rise to errors in dose estimation when the irradiation temperature used in laboratory procedures is different from that in the natural environment. No evidence was found for the existence of shallow trap saturation effects that could give rise to a dose-rate dependency of electron trapping.
