Tl dating labs
The ISGS OSL dating lab is equipped with a Risø TL/OSL-DA-20 Reader; Gamma Spectrometers; two amber light prep labs with fume hoods, shatter box, auto-grinding mortal, dry oven, and furnaces.

In the case of OSL sediment dating, suitable material (sand or silt-sized grains of quartz and feldspar) is usually available ubiquitously throughout the site.The age range for pottery and other ceramics covers the entire period in which these materials have been produced.The Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit (ORAU) is a radiocarbon laboratory engaged in collaborative research across many disciplines where the measurement of the radiocarbon isotope is useful including: The laboratory provides a radiocarbon dating service for people undertaking research in all these areas.
(approximate dating of the last burning of a terracotta) Two samples Analysis.
Additionally, since it is capable of directly dating cultural materials such as ceramics, the bridging arguments between dating events and target events are minimized.
The equipment is also capable of dating sediments in order to elucidate depositional sequences at archaeological sites.
Remarkably, at Gran Dolina TL was able to provide an accurate date of ca.
900 ka for sediment below the 780-ka magnetic reversal boundary, and above the oldest hominin fossils.
