High-resolution Cathodoluminescence Spectroscopy on Shocked Quartz Grains

Read about the possibilities of cathodoluminescence imaging for studying meteorite impacts in shocked quartz grains in the white paper. Cathodoluminescence helps to assess the character and crystallinity of distinct planar deformation features presented in the quartz grains. Check the preview of the white paper before requesting it.
