David Strebler is a PhD-Candidate of the CRC 806 in the Project F2 – Application of Luminescence and Electron-Spin-Resonance-Dating in Geoarchaeological Studies. During our last presentation within the IRTG, Franz and I gave an extended introduction to luminescence dating and the proper sampling. Today, after a short reminder on how luminescence works, we will present the progress of our research during the last year.
Franz Hartung is PhD student and research associate at the Cologne Luminescence Laboratory and the project F2 of the CRC 806 “Our way to Europe” and investigates dose rate determination techniques within the context of trapped charge dating methods. Before he came to Cologne, Franz Hartung studied Physics at the TU Dresden and graduated with a diploma degree, whereas the thesis was written in the radiation Physics group (ASP) in the institute of nuclear and particle Physics (IKTP).
