    Abstract

    An instrument has been designed for the routine analysis of the optically stimulated luminescence signal from single grains of sand. The system is capable of analysing over 3000 individual grains in a single measurement sequence, and the OSL signal from each grain can be read in less than 3 s. The design principles are described, along with preliminary measurements that illustrate the operation of the system and its capabilities.
