    The recently developed single grain attachment for the Riso TL-OSL reader has been modified to achieve linearly modulated optically stimulated luminescence (LM-OSL). Three different types of luminescence behaviour were observed in 81 quartz grains measured. These types are those showing only the easy-to-bleach component, those with only the hard-to-bleach component, and those exhibiting all components. The results of this preliminary study show that LM-OSL experiments carried out at the single grain level may give important insights into the luminescence properties observed when viewing samples consisting of multiple grains.
