A comprehensive model for CO 2 - radicals in fossil tooth enamel: Implications for ESR dating

Joannes-Boyau, Renaud; Grun, Rainer


In the past two years, we have carried out a series of irradiation experiments on fossil tooth enamel fragments, using gamma irradiation for the whole enamel thickness, UV irradiation through the buccal-enamel boundary (BEB) and beta irradiation through the BEB as well as the dentine-enamel junction (DEJ). Using a simulated annealing procedure, the ESR spectra were analysed for three types of CO2- radicals, consisting of two types of anisotropic CO2- radicals (AICORs, orthorhombic and axial)...[Show more]
