The optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) and thermoluminescence (TL) signals of an Al2O3:C,Mg single crystal were investigated as a function of the heating temperature and illumination time before readout, respectively. The TL and OSL results were analyzed in complementary ways, including the area under the curve, whole range and partial integration, and peak intensity. A correlation between the continuous decay of the main TL peak intensity (at 185 degrees C at a heating rate of 1 degrees C/s) against blue light (470 nm) illumination times and the decay of the OSL signal for higher temperatures was found. Both these results showed that the emptying of the OSL active trap was closely related to the emptying of the trap related to the main TL peak, indicating a correlation of both phenomena. (AU)
