Luminescence dating might be the best tool to determine the age of Pleistocene landscapes and archaeological artefacts. Many luminescence dating methods are out in the wild, some of them well-established, others just experimental. Over the last years, I investigated data analysis issues of some of those measurement techniques. This blog gives you access to new solutions I developed.


2020-11-26 ‘OSLdecomposition’ release

Just in time for the DLED2020, we released our R package OSLdecomposition for signal component identification and separation in multi-exponentially decaying measurements. Our focus laid on continous-wave optically stimulated luminescence (CW-OSL) measurements of quartz samples for dosimetry purposes. But you might find the package helpful for other applications too. Check out our DLED poster for a quick introduction into the Why and How.

2020-11-26 goes online

Welcome to my site about new data analysis methods for luminescence dating measurements. Since about 2013, I worked at number of methods on this issue. This blog is meant to give you access to some of my findings and the software I developed. As this blog will slowly get more content over the next months, I hope to see you around sometime!
