Cathodoluminescence imaging for geology

In this webinar we discuss the physical background of cathodoluminescence emission in rocks, sample preparation, and the typical CL workflow. We also show examples of how the technique can be applied to sedimentary rocks, gemstones, and zircons. This webinar was hosted by our SPARC specialist, Toon Coenen, and in collaboration with our Australian distributor, AXT.
