We make resumes and CVs, and we write bios for our social media profiles, which are becoming central for everything from everyday communication to dating and business.
There are, of course, also many non-verbal ways in which we document ourselves, which is a focus of my dissertation.
Therefore, although ceramic TL dating can in general solve the problem of authentication of ancient ceramics, there are still complexities that require further research and study.
As the material is heated during measurements, a weak light signal, the thermoluminescence, proportional to the radiation dose is produced.
The later work of Michel Foucault suggests that self-documentation is not new.
On the contrary, many in Ancient Greece and Rome apparently kept , or notebooks “to collect what one has managed to hear or read, and for a purpose that is nothing less than the shaping of the self.” These were fragmentary notebooks, but their result was not merely a collection of disjointed scraps; rather, they contributed to a new whole, along with the writer themselves.
As a dating tool the TL technique has been of great success in authentication of ancient ceramic art objects.
These complicated factors are analyzed and discussed.
Lo and behold, power consumption is now down to 11 W, the screen is dimming automatically and the session locked after 5 minutes inactive.Natural crystalline materials contain imperfections: impurity (Figure 1).Depending on the depth of the traps (the energy required to free an electron from them) the storage time of trapped electrons will vary- some traps are sufficiently deep to store charge for hundreds of thousands of years.You can install CPUfreq tool, and set a Powersave option or manually set the lowest clock speed.I am able to reduce power consumption by some 10% to 15% using its tweaks, but the laptop becomes somewhat unusable.
