By Sam Boggs Jr,David Krinsley

Minerals in sedimentary rocks emit attribute noticeable luminescence known as cathodoluminescence (CL) while bombarded by way of excessive strength electrons. CL emissions might be displayed as color pictures in a cathodoluminescence microscope or as high-resolution monochromatic photos in a scanning electron microscope. this offers details no longer on hand by way of different options at the provenance of the mineral grains in sedimentary rocks, and insights into diagenetic adjustments. The publication, first released in 2006, starts with an simply understood presentation of the basic ideas of CL imaging. this can be through an outline and dialogue of the tools utilized in CL imaging, and an in depth account of its functions to the examine of sedimentary rocks. the quantity is a entire, simply understood description of the functions of cathodoluminescence imaging to the research of sedimentary rocks. it is going to be an immense source for tutorial researchers, execs and complicated graduate scholars in sedimentary geology.
