About this book

From the publishers announcement:

Presents an overview of the general concepts in luminescence spectroscopy as well as experimental methods and their interpretation. Special emphasis is laid on the fluorescence lifetime and the determination of time-resolved spectra. This method enables the exposure of new luminescence in minerals previously hidden by more intensive centers. Specialists in the fields of solid state physics, chemistry and spectroscopy will find a wealth of new information in this book.

Aus den Rezensionen: "! Das Buch ! bringt durch die vielen Beispiele einen sehr breiten Rahmen. ! alle, die Daten zu einzelnen Mineralen finden wollen, konnen in den ! Kapiteln fundig werden. ! sehr vielseitig. Das Buch stellt die Phanomene und die Methoden auf breiter Basis vor und kann allen Interessierten empfohlen werden. Es sollte an allen Stellen vorhanden sein an denen man mit dem Phanomen der Lumineszenz zu tun hat. ! In Bibliotheken sollte es keinesfalls fehlen. Auch Sammler konnen tieferes Verstandnis fur das Phanomen gewinnen !" (Herbert Pollmann, in: der Aufschluss, 2007, Vol. 58, Issue 1, S. 20)
