Decomposition of beta-ray induced ESR spectra of fossil tooth enamel

Joannes-Boyau, Renaud; Grun, Rainer


Two fossil tooth enamel fragments were irradiated with beta rays, one through the outer surface, the other through the dentine-enamel junction. The angular ESR spectra of the two fragments were decomposed using an automated simulated annealing (SA) procedure, which is particularly well suited to separate overlapping signals. Beta irradiation generated different qualitative and quantitative responses to previous gamma irradiation experiments. Similar to gamma rays, the beta irradiation created...[Show more]
