Abstract

Abstract Thermoluminescence (TL) measurements of calcite derived from shells or shell fragments are relevant to the detection of irradiated shellfish for enforcement of food labelling regulations, and to dating of archaeological and fossil materials. The bio-inorganic nature of the material, which is both micro-porous and an intimate mixture of organic and inorganic phases, presents problems for direct TL measurements. This paper discusses the optimal conditions for direct TL measurements on dried, powdered samples from modern shells.
