Microcomputer-Controlled Reader Systems for Archaeological and Geological TL Dating

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Two fully automated TL reader systems for TL dating and a manually operated reader for research purpose were put into operation during 1982-3. All systems are controlled by HP-85 or HP-86 microcomputers; thus flexibility in selection of measurement parameters, calculation of TL signals and display and printout of glow curves is achieved. The basic design of the automated reader system incorporates a 24-position microprocessor-controlled sample changer and a beta irradiator. The system automatically provides the data for constructing the primary and secondary response curves required for determining the archaeological and geological ages. The principle of the measurement procedures are described, and dating results are presented to illustrate the performance of the systems
