Cu + was doped in fused quartz using simple technique and the OSL and TL was studied. The doped quartz shows enhanced TL as well as OSL sensitivity. Its OSL sensitivity is 0.33 of Al 2 O 3 : C (Landauer Inc., USA) with blue light (470 nm) stimulation. Since natural quartz is being used for archaeological dating due to its good retentivity of the stored signal, doped fused quartz will be a promising phosphor for its use in radiation dosimetry using OSL technique.
