This paper uses the linear modulation technique to study red IRSL emission of potassium feldspars. Sub-samples were subjected to various pre-treatment and measurement conditions in an attempt to understand the relevant mechanisms of charge transfer. The linear modulation curves fitted most successfully to a sum of three first order components and we present supporting empirical evidence for the presence of three separate signal components. Additionally, the form of the red emission was observed to closely resemble the UV emission, implying the same donor charge concentrations may supply different recombination centres (assuming emission wavelength depends on centre type).
