A brief overview of tl
A brief overview of TL

  • What is TL?

    -It’s the thermally stimulated emission of light from a material

  • What are the requirements for TL to happen?

    -The material has to be either an insulator or semiconductor (that’s why we take off all the metallic part of the meteorite first!)

    -Material must have been exposed to radiation

    -It must be stimulated by heating


So what is the difference between natural and induced tl
So what is the difference between natural and induced TL?

  • Natural TL (Stacy’s part) is produced by a sample in the “as received” state.

  • Induced TL is produced by a sample drained off it’s NTL and subjected to a standard radiation dose. The measurement of ITL will provide info on the mineralogy and nature of the particles.


Procedures
Procedures

  • Sample Preparation

  • TL (natural+induced)

  • Glow curve analysis

  • Data reduction

  • Final analysis & deductions



What parameters are we looking for
What parameters are we looking for?

  • For ITL, important parameter is TL sensitivity

  • It’s calculated as the average PH (peak height) of sample normalized to the Dhajala meteorite.



Induced thermoluminescence


Can we compare these values to other parameters
Can we compare these values to other parameters? consistent with high type 3 / low type 4 ordinary chondrites

  • Yes! We can compare them to Olivine and Pyroxene PMD, a mineralogical measure of the scatter, and see if we spot any trends


Conclusions
Conclusions consistent with high type 3 / low type 4 ordinary chondrites

  • Our TL sensitivity values agreed with high type 3 / low type 4 ordinary chondrites

  • Further comparison with PMD showed a proportionallity trend between TL sensitivity and pyroxene PMD ==> PMD goes down as TL sens. goes up

  • The olivine PMD shows no relation to TL sensitivity (because diffusion is much faster in ol)
