Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) from quartz is used,
e.g., for geological and archeological dating, and involves the measurement of
light from a sample, followed by fitting a sum of exponentials to these data.
We consider two different forms of exponential models for this purpose – one
without weighting and another with a certain weighting of the data. In this
work we compare the two models with regards to their ability to estimate
the correct model parameters, including the unknown number of exponential
