    • Abstract


      The 110°C glow peak of quartz, though unstable at room temperature, has worked wonderfully in archaeology and retrospective dosimetry due to its pre-dose sensitization property. Various aspects of the peak, like its nature, defect centres involved, the impact of different stimuli and its application have been extensively studied. The main aims of this review are to (i) summarize briefly the work carried out on the various facets of this TL glow peak during the last four decades and (ii) identify the areas which need further attention in order to have a better understanding of the luminescence characteristics of this TL peak.
