The relationship between the characteristics of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) and thermally stimulated luminescence (TSL) of dosimetric crystals based on nominally pure single-crystal, ion-defective corundum is considered. It is established that the TSL and OSL characteristics of these crystals are closely interrelated and are caused by the same active traps. It is shown that the OSL of deep traps has a form difficult to interpret, which can be due to the effect of both more shallow and deeper traps.
