About this book

Minerals in sedimentary rocks emit characteristic visible luminescence called cathodoluminescence (CL) when bombarded by high energy electrons. CL emissions can be displayed as colour images in a cathodoluminescence microscope or as high-resolution monochromatic images in a scanning electron microscope. This provides information not available by other techniques on the provenance of the mineral grains in sedimentary rocks, and insights into diagenetic changes.

Application of Cathodoluminescence Imaging to the Study of Sedimentary Rocks, first published in 2006, is a comprehensive, easily understood description of the applications of cathodoluminescence imaging to the study of sedimentary rocks.
