The main findings of this Short Term Innovative Research are important steps in experimental design. Evaluating grain to grain variation in sensitivity to luminescence is critical to evaluating young and zero age samples. Differentiating grains that have no signal because they are not sensitive from grains that were fully bleached resulted in the need for extra measurements. Repeated bleaching and dosing cycles were conducted on single and multi-grain aliquots and a dose recovery was conducted on each aliquot after measuring the natural signal with the single aliquot regenerative dose method.
