The structure of the linearly modulated optically stimulated luminescence (LM-OSL) signal was studied for four sedimentary quartz samples, collected from different sites around Istanbul, Turkey. Applying a computerized deconvolution analysis to the LM-OSL curves, at least six individual components of first-order kinetics were identified and photoionization cross-section of each component was evaluated. The OSL dose-response curve of each component for each quartz sample was obtained, showing a remarkable differentiation from component to component. The behavior of a highly dosed sample to successive LM-OSL measurements was also studied showing a stable recuperation signal in the position of the "slow" and "medium" components and high resistance to OSL bleaching of the "slow" component. The individual sensitivity of each component as a function of the activation temperature was obtained. The sensitivity of each component was normalized over the respective sensitivity of the glow-peak at 110 degrees C of quartz in order to investigate the ability of the 110 degrees C glow-peak to act as a correction factor for all components of the LM-OSL curves examined.
