Cathodoluminescence Imaging on Sedimentary Rocks: Quartz Sandstones

Read the white paper to learn how cathodoluminescence spectroscopy can be used for micro-characterization of rocks and minerals, and how this technique can be employed to study quartz sandstone, a common type of sedimentary rock, which has gained both fundamental interest as well as practical interest in the form of fossil fuel exploration and extraction.
