Lund Luminescence Day 2022

Welcome to a day about luminescence dating and dosimetry!


Luminescence work.

Hosted by the Lund University Luminescence centre for Dating and Dosimetry (Department of Geology in Lund, and Medical Radiation Physics in Malmö), we aim to introduce participants to optically stimulated luminescence dating and dosimetry. With a full day of talks, discussions and demonstrations, we’ll focus on the role of luminescence in archaeology, geology, medicine, environmental studies and forensics.

The full programme for the day (27 September) can be found below.

Attendance is FREE, but advanced sign up is essential.

Registration link:

LLD is a whole day event, however it is split into two sessions (morning: geology/archaeology and afternoon: medical/personal/environmental dosimetry), and you are very welcome to join us for just one session if you prefer.
In the event that this workshop is over-subscribed, we will operate a waiting list in the order that we received your registration.
Please don’t hesitate to be in contact with us should you have any questions: luminescence [at] geol [dot] lu [dot] se (luminescence[at]geol[dot]lu[dot]se)  
Looking forward to seeing you there!
