Project: Study and application of geochronological methods based on nuclear radiation damage.
- project duration
- 01-OCT-88 – 30-NOV-13
- The project that is proposed is intended in the first place to build out FT-research in a more permanent way within Belgium. In a second place it is our aim to initiate thermo-luminescence dating in Belgium. This method is based on the fact that alfa, beta and gamma-rays resulting from the radio-active decay of natural unstable isotopes remove electrons from their parent atoms.
