Cathodoluminescence and its Application to Goescience

Volume 45, 2014
Editors : I. M. Coulson
ISBN: 978-0-921294-55-9

This MAC Short Course volume addresses both the theory behind the phenomenon of cathodoluminescence (CL) and the application of this microscopic technique to all fields of geoscience investigation.

Aimed at the graduate student, researcher and practicing professional, short course chapters will cover the basics of theory, causes of cathodoluminescence in minerals and materials, instrumentation, recent advances in cathodoluminescence imaging and spectroscopy data collection, and interpretation of spectral responses.

Case studies relating to sedimentological, petrological, mineralogical, petroleum geology and economic geology fields are included.
